So this is the bolt in question. It looked and felt bomber, and I jumped on it a bunch. There's also a bomber #2 placement 3 feet below it, so this thing is good to climb. This is the only SMC hanger on the route and all other bolts are big and solid looking. Jan 4, 2017
The first bolt after the beginning crack section is in desperate need of replacement. The bolt is spinning, bent, and there are obvious "spider-web" cracks running out in all directions from the bolt hole. This bolt protects the entire trad section, and if it were to blow, one would take a substantial fall onto their last trad piece. Mar 22, 2015
