Never did this climb before yesterday, but it's a worthwhile climb and the new anchors are awesome! Jun 28, 2013
Dale Haas and I replaced the two protection bolts and two anchor bolts with 3/8"x2.25" SS Powers/Rawl 5-piece bolts. We added quicklinks and rappel rings to the anchors. This work was sponsored by the American Safe Climbing Association (www.safeclimbing.org). They appreciate your support. Jun 9, 2013
