See comment under Broken Keg Blues.

BBA is actually to the LEFT of BKB and the two routes do not share an anchor. BBA does share an anchor with the route immediately to its left.

A bolt towards the top of the climb has been missing a hanger for several years, but the climbing at the bolt is easy 5th Class so it's not too bad as is.

Best sport route at Haystack. Apr 21, 2016

Thanks for the corrections. Think I have them fixed. Apr 21, 2016
The bolt Bryan mentioned was still missing a hangar as of yesterday, and I found a passable nut placement close by, but although the climbing is pretty easy there, it would be great to see a new hangar there, as it is a pretty significant runout without it or some trad gear. Jul 15, 2018
