Comments: Thanks for the clean up, John!

Yeah, that place is disappointing in terms of trash. I've cleaned it up a number of times over the years, including taking a shovel to bury someone's poop. Maybe if climbers frequented that area more often, people wouldn't be as likely to party there...

Cheers!

Comments: I rated it PG13 as its reachy and has a bit of a sketchy traverse to reach the poorly positioned anchor. Comments here confirm some of that sentiment:

Comments: I got the pic about two hours before I launched into my homemade clam dip at a Superbowl party...ha ha. I don't think that's mid fall, but, either at the end or near the end of the fall. Surprised when I got home and looked as I didn't think I snapped one at that time and don't remember you falling per se.

I have a few photo's of the lead pre-fall as well.

The rope is tight from a fat Ti Russian screw that apparently got bent (no one able to retrieve it). The "something" above the screw/rope... more >>

Comments: ^^^Those look like old recycled hangers from rebolting efforts on older routes, methinks. Leeper hanger and an old knifeblade piton from the looks of it. Kinda wish those wouldn't make a re-appearance on newer routes. So...not really "homemade" but "re-purposed".

Comments: Not to be overly argumentative, but, you have the rope through both chain links on the bottom...and, the carabiners are a great idear to keep the wear off the chain. Methinks there's a higher chance of your locking carabiner jamming its locking sleeve than either chain link failing. Just seems overly difficult to clean especially, but, nice for wear and tear on the anchor.

A set of short quickdraws might make rope pull/TRing easier too, and, still be a way to keep the wear off the anchor.

Comments: Where's the Mussy?

You wouldn't need both lockers IMHO. Just a single non locker really.
