You think that anchor's bad, you should see some of the ones we've been replacing out here. The single 3/8" bolt at this stance is suffering from galvanic corrosion, the rust spots surrounding the spot where the hanger and stud are in contact suggest that the bolt itself is probably browner than the aftermath of a casino buffet.

Realistically, with three bolts in place, this anchor is unlikely to experience catastrophic failure before being replaced. Back it up with perfect cams or ignore it entirely, this is not a hanging belay or a spot which is frequently rapped from-who wants to miss the splitter hand crack above? Nov 18, 2013
