The left bolt has an older, thinner SMC hanger while the right has a newer thicker hanger. The older SMC hangers are the ones to be worried about as they have had some failures whereas the newer, thicker ones are just fine. Apr 17, 2015
Yikes!!! Those are the infamous "SMC" hangers...the same models that blew on the rap down from Sickle Ledge, killing the entire party...way back, long ago. These need to be collected and put in the gear museum at IME, right?! Apr 15, 2015
