The last two bolts on this route are spinners. Kind of spooky to fall on.

They'll get taken care of this week. Thanks for the heads-up, Andrew!

I replaced both spinners today on Golden Shower, bolts looked totally fine, they just slipped a little. They looked really good for being 20 yrs old, very little rust, threads looked good. I'll get back to paint the new ones next time out, enjoy the climb.

Joe thanks for maintaining the area.

I believe the description of the route having a bad fall potential at the last bolt is inaccurate. I have fallen there many times. Also, most people use an incorrect start. The first bolt on golden shower is just above the broken rock/jug 7 feet up between caution when flashing and deer crossing. Deer crossing original start was straight up with a high first bolt that was stick clipped.
