Two bolts on this one, fixed nut still there. Bring a small cam or two for after the second bolt.

There was a fixed pin in the horizontal until it was stolen. Someone should put a bolt in so its all fixed gear. That wire should also eventually be replaced as the cable rusts out. I don't know if there are anchors on it either. They would probably be a nice addition. I don't recall why they were never installed.

This is not one I plan on returning to soon. Okay rock and awkward climbing. The fixed nuts and two protection bolts were still in place, but no anchor bolts (which aren't really necessary since there are good natural anchors and an easy walk-off) have been added.
