Description 

Quoted from Randys guidebook......"This is a three-bolt face route up solution pockets about 100 feet right of Slam Dance." There are three bolts that are fine as they are. But above the third bolt is an obvious crack that would love to accept a #3 Camalot or it's equivalent (Too bad I did not have one with me on the climb!!!)


Protection 

There are three bolts, "button heads" and two bolts for anchors. The second bolt looks a little funky but felt solid. Currently the anchor bolts have slings and a large screw link to rap from.

That second bolt is very suspect we did not even clip it. Instead went left to the crack and stuck a cam in. That bolt is sticking out now about 3/8 of an inch. Anchors are in good shape.
