Vertigo at Cannon has bad anchors
Jul 15, 2013
Climbed and rapped this weekend from the top of the off width. There are two bolted anchors and one with fixed pins.
The anchor above the p3 finger crack has one good bolt and one stud hung with a nut cable, plus an old rusty p.o.s. that should be pulled. I left a small nut to rap off.
The p4 anchor is two old pitons that are uninspiring, but can be backed up with gear, and can be skipped when rapping. New pins wouldn't be an extravagance.
The p5 anchor is one good bolt and one or two bad ones, I don't remember exactly.
Basically, the route needs two new bolts and some chain/rings. I shouldn't do it, but if someone else has the wherewithal and inclination, I'd chip in for hardware.
