Michael Moore, Dave Jones and I have made some improvements in the last week or so.  The bolts have been replace with glue on for the route Shredder on Shredder Wall.  The good news is that a self described "small" leader fall was taken and the new bolt held.  Also 3 small belay platform were dug in.  Now for the work part.  The belay platform under Shedder is supported by 2 trees but is a dozen years (or more) old.  The rock work has been ok but a tree closer in would help.  I planter a spruce tree yesterday for future use.  Won't matter for me but someday it make come in handy.  Therefore if your up there and have extra water when you leave - dump it on the spruce. Also, for the good new - Dylan led the chimney to the left of Green Bay.  Claudine had been eyeing this route for years so we named it Claudine Chimney (about 5.8 - no anchor - traverse off).  Between Dylan and I we threw off a half dozen holds but be careful there could be a few more loose ones.

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
