Looking for input on what I believe are unsafe anchors on the Alpenglow Wall, between Keystone and Arapahoe Basin ski areas. Was told the climb is a 5.9+. Not much info out there on the area but I believe the route would be Equilibrium. 30-40' Left of the main crack with the large chockstone at the top.
Only climbed it once, and cleaned the draws. While I was doing it I noticed the anchors spinning. I read they're cold shut anchors. I thought they were glue-in P type anchors but regardless, they spun easily and I don't think any anchor should. Or am I wrong? I've never placed a 'bolted' anchor.
Any experts out there who'd like to comment?
Any locals who could check it out and offer input/assistance?
