The less than inspiring anchor for Brachiation Dan...

Protection 

4 bolts to a single bolt with a chain link.

Its been awhile since this route was put up by Scott Loomis. The bolts are looking pretty funky and the hanger for the 1st bolt is missing. There are 4 bolts & single bolt anchor on the route.

Do you think anyone would be opposed to my going and rebolting the route?

Seth...there has been a lot of hardware and anchor replacement at Texas Canyon recently. If you have the time and energy I'm sure upgrading the anchor and hardware on "Brachiation Dance" would be appreciated.

Seth, I will be in the area and would be happy to help with the rebolting if you wanted a hand. Just direct message me if you want the help.
