Wow. <br>
Anchor bolts for the 5.10b TR. Might as well skip the bolts and use your tree anchor for the belay. <br>

I also noticed these are the same bolts, hangers, and rusted quick links as on the wall 100' NE of Dizzy Dial. Does anyone know who did these FAs?

Dizzy Dial was named by Tim Wilhelmi who got he FA; Richard Ludwig and I were there to belay as he worked the route/decided on bolt locations/and drilled. Apr 22, 2015

Geoff, The whole anchor needs to be ripped out, not just the quicklinks replaced. From the picture, even the rock looks bad, full of cracks. Just replacing the links would encourage people into believing that the rest of the anchor is good. Apr 23, 2015
A few things:

Patrick's Point does not allow bolting, even to replace existing poor bolts. Which is absolutely foolish. Rangers have chopped bolts that are within reach on several old routes and even some TR anchors I know of, then left the ones in the middle of routes that they can't reach on foot. It is all ironic since they did a terrible job at chopping all those bolts, leaving exposed metal that leaks rust onto the rock.

These bolts are pretty much unnecessary, I rapped and top roped from a tree 40' back (which is the only way to even access these bolts). These bolts would only be of any use if there were lead bolts under them, which would be nice!


Matthias, This is on the 5.10 route 100' right of Dizzy Dial. Same bolts though. But on that topic, who decided the bolt placement wayyy out right after the roof? Were they trying to make another route or something? Most people now skip the bolt and place a nut in the crack. Apr 23, 2015
