Regarding the comment about only seeing 4 bolts: (First, thanks for posting the feedback) It is possible that I had forgotten what I had done by the time I got around to posting this on MP, but more likely the bolts are probably there but very camouflaged. When I first started bolting here I was really into the idea of making them unobtrusive for hunters and hikers. What I can guarantee is that the bolts on this route are nearly 6 inches deep, (5.75" to be exact) by ½" diameter including the bolts at the anchor which were re-done to replace the initial 2"x ⅜" bolts. I have, and would trust my life to them. I hope people enjoy these routes, and maybe brush the moss off once in a while since I haven't lived here in several years. May 23, 2017

This anchor was recently retro bolted with 5.75"x 1/2" Power bolts and chains. (most bolts here are 5.75" x1/2" Power bolts) Oct 2, 2012
