|I was climbing at the Holdout June 12, 2004. Someone (a lower form of life) stole all the Hangers from the top of all the climbs. We had to down climb a corner on the North-East end of the formation.|

|I just wanted to say thanks to the cheap asshole who stole the hangers of all the anchors.|

|Just for clarification, most, if not all, the anchors have been replaced.|

I was out there last week, and there was one cold shut on the anchors for Bushwhack (or Narrow and Ugly or Wide and Ugly...). Not that I recommend hanging your life on a single piece, but the bolts are in great shape and we had no problem rapping off the one cold shut.
Please don't take it off, who ever is doing that.
Also, I wanted to add that it looks like the route labeling for the north end of the southeast face is a little off in the big red guidebook. Narrow and Ugly in the guidebook appears to point to a very thin seam which is NOT 5.8. The hand crack just to the right of it (which is un-labled in the book) is a nice 5.8.
Also, to get to these climbs, head up to the right side of the big ledge and scramble up a narrow gully (as described in the book). The left side of the ledge is a blank face.

|Current anchor situation, July 2011: NW Face: Still a good rap station atop "Beefeater". I haven't checked for the rap stations which are supposed to be above "Mad Cow Disease," "Pipeline," or "Currey's Diagonal." SE face: Slightly swiveling coldshuts atop the shared finish of "Wide & Ugly"/"Narrow & Ugly"/"Bushwack." Atop "Arch Stanton," a rusty chain and a hangerless buttonhead only. I did not check for slings or bolts atop "Flaming Blue Jesus." The rap stations I checked are all one-rope rappels (50-60 meter... 'go long,' like the QB says).|
