The bolt is still there, but somebody removed the hanger. Take a wide cam or big bro to protect the last section. Oct 10, 2016

That is sad. If you are going to chop a bolt, go ahead and chop it. Stealing the hanger is just that: stealing. Oct 12, 2016

This kind of thing is becoming all too common around here - I recently replaced 2 bolt hangers on the most popular route at Cathey's Creek. Same issue with several sets of anchor 'biners both there and at looking glass. The fact that it seems to be most prevalent at the very crags where climbers depend on fixed gear the most speaks to this new era of entitlement. Sean, next time I'm there I'll put one back on and make sure it can't walk off this time. Oct 12, 2016

Should we start packing carrot bolt hangers for NC now? Oct 14, 2016
