Start left and traverse right to the first bolt, or use a stick clip. Great route!

As of 11/1/2015, it looks like the hanger on the 5th bolt is missing (the bolt on the prow of the roof). From the ground it appears the bolt is still there and in decent shape.

Anyone know why the hanger was removed? Is the bolt suspect?

Thx C-gator for the heads up. To the best of my knowledge there are no issues with that bolt although it has held a gazillion falls. We'll check it out next time we're up there.

On 5/2/16 that hanger was replaced. The stud is in excellent condition. I have no idea why the hanger went missing.
