Comments: I believe the actual name of this climb is "The 19th Hole." A pretty common name for the bar at golf courses is "The 19th Hole" (as in 'watering hole') and that's where the name comes from.

Comments: You can just get down with a 60m rope. It doesn't seem like it when you are climbing, but because the route veers to the right up near the top (watch for rope drag), the rappel is OK with a 60m though you are close to the ends.

Dale Haas and I added 3/8" SS quick links and Mussy hooks to the anchor. The hardware was provided by the American Safe Climbing Association (ASCA - www.safeclimbing.org). Your support is greatly appreciated.

Comments: Dale Haas and I took a wrench up on this climb today to address the loose 3rd bolt. It turns out that the bolt is fine. It is a 1/2" Powers "5-piece" bolt that is properly tightened. The hanger does move a bit, but that is not a safety issue, IMHO.

Comments: Mark,

Sure, if you want a bunch of crap cluttering up the hanger, you don't need to replace the ring, but why put yourself in that situation in the first place? Just use replaceable hardware to begin with.

Comments: This is a Tom Kohlmann route. When he establishes anchors on top of his climbs, he uses one quicklink in each bolt with the quicklinks twisted 90 degrees to align the rope properly for rappel. Most likely, someone added chain to his twisted links.

Comments: Greg Barnes and I replaced the two cold shuts at the anchor with Petzl SS hangers and SS quicklinks and rings. The original bolts are 3/8" x 3.5" SS wedge anchors, so we did not replace them. The hardware for this work was provided by the American Safe Climbing Association(www.safeclimbing.org). They appreciate your support.

Comments: This might be a troll, but Muriel penned the cover art for the book. That's why her name is on the cover.

Comments: One note about the map: where it says "Trailhead Additional parking", that is definitely not the case. That's a no parking area, and the locals don't want you parking there either. = It is highly recommended that you park at the area labeled "Camping Area public parking."
