I think bolting rap stations on climbs that see a lot of traffic is needed. Thanks for you work Sam! Soon as it warms up some I'm planning a trip to climb South Six Shooter with the wife :)
Question, when you are bolting out here in the desert do you prefer glue in bolts, or expansion bolts? Jan 25, 2013
Great job with the anchors Sam! Everyone really appreciated that rap/belay station. We also used them instead of the rap station below the other summit (East I think) after climbing that really fun .9 (the one with the "varied corner" and "bulge". Is that rap station supposed to be a bad joke?! I've never seen anything quite like it in 19 years of climbing! Bolts on a block that is perched on a ledge and the block is not huge. It's tilted towards the face, but barely. There is a pristine face right above the block that could have been used. I did not get to inspect it up close, the hangers looked new, but homemade (black colored).

We also cleaned up the tat on that summit. There is at least one good bolt up there, however the existing slings were a mess. We did the best we could working with the existing slings which were mostly in good shape. Jun 8, 2010
Beagle,
Are you serious? You would rather have that pile of tat than the camo anchor that Sam placed?

Not me.

Thanks Sam! Jul 15, 2008
