Refrigerator Wall

Greased Lightning-has the original anchor from the FA in 1989.  Rusted studs and SMC hangers.

Breakaway-all original hardware from the FA in 1991.  Rusted 3/8" studs with SMC hangers.  2 out of the 3 anchor bolts are protruding from the wall and are loose.

This is at the top of Drifting. The sling is pretty ghetto.  It’s a shame the bolts are so far apart. The rock looks fine between them. (Tho maybe taps with a hammer would prove me wrong). Regardless, seems like a candidate for some metal hardware or other type of update given how classic/popular the route is.

Any rebolters following this?  I'm in town for a week (until 22nd) and happy to go out and do some work.  I dont have any bolts/glue with me but if there is a local collective I'm more than happy to put in some hours.  I have drill/tools/etc.
