[Hide Comment] The anchors are more like 150 feet from the ground, 120 is not even close to accurate. Also I only used 1 #2 and 1 #3 on the whole route. I'd say .4-4 with 5 #1's and maybe 4 or 5 .75's. Anchor is one hex equalized with a bolt (good enough) and is guarded by the crux. Good adventure pitch although a bit sandy! Apr 2, 2018
