Only a few of the original bolts where 1/4" placed above 5 3/8" bolts. All of the bolts where updated by a local climber to new 3/8" using a funkness device. Feb 12, 2010

Ahh my first Aid/Solo. Can't believe I trusted those bolts. Later went on to do Forrest roof and sheared a bolt at the lip under body weight. One second I was about to clip anchors, the next swinging wildly 5' above the boulders. Never again will I trust any 1/4 hanger. Nov 11, 2009
