Buzzard Breath at Currahee

After not having gone for a while, I went back to visit Currahee today for some climbing. There's apparently been quite a bit of bolt replacement work done there this year. One of the routes I did today was Buzzard Breath, which I was fortunate enough to get the FA of, back in the late 90's.

Anyway, here's a big THANK YOU FOR A JOB WELL DONE to whoever rebolted Buzzard Breath. The original bolts were apparently pulled, the existing holes redrilled to 1/2", and 1/2" marine grade SS bolts with Fixe hangers were installed. Bolts were replaced one for one and all in the original locations with no patching required. The anchors were replaced as well. I don't know who did this, but I'm grateful and impressed by the quality of your work on that route.

Thank you very much!

Thanks for the rebolting work at curahee!
I hope the access fund kicked in for hardware.

Scott and Jeff did the work on the main face. Don't know who did Buzzard Breath. It had to have been in the last couple of months though.

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
