Sadly, as of today (May 14, 2016), just about every bolt in this area is rusted, pitted, and generally terrifying. There are a couple exceptions where someone has re-bolted, but pretty much every route is a serious accident waiting to happen. It's a shame, as the routes look like they would be pretty fun. If anyone has re-bolting experience, I'd be glad to lend a hand and/or $$ to fix up this area.
