Its been awhile since this route was put up by Scott Loomis. The bolts are looking pretty funky and the hanger for the 1st bolt is missing. There are 4 bolts & single bolt anchor on the route. Jul 6, 2011
Do you think anyone would be opposed to my going and rebolting the route? Feb 15, 2016

Seth...there has been a lot of hardware and anchor replacement at Texas Canyon recently. If you have the time and energy I'm sure upgrading the anchor and hardware on "Brachiation Dance" would be appreciated. Feb 15, 2016

Seth, I will be in the area and would be happy to help with the rebolting if you wanted a hand. Just direct message me if you want the help.

Kevin Thaw lists this as one of his notable first ascents on his web site. If you want to be formal you could contact him for permission to add bolts. He is a very nice guy and probably would be fine with it. kevinthaw.kahrlconsulting.c… Sep 11, 2018
