I replaced one of the anchor bolts on this route after pulling the old one out by hand back in 2005 or so. Be careful, inspect the bolts when you climb.

This is a good route, easiest sport lead at Pilot. Good intro to sport leading if all you've been doing at Pilot is Top-Rope.

One of the top hangers is loose, but the bolt seems secure.

I disagree. I think pole dancing is a better and safer first sport lead at pilot than Mild mannered secretary. I've seen a first time leader get freaked out with the spacing between bolts and freeze while being to the right of the anchors and not being able to move over. His foot was behind the rope and he took a 20 footer, flipped upside down and hit his head. Luckily he had a helmet on.
