Comments: To add a vote to the debate above about the location of the first bolt, I found it to be absolutely fine. If there were a lower bolt, it wouldn't do much to mitigate the low-angle start anyway.

Comments: As of 6/22/2014 the right anchor bolt (not nut) is loose.

Comments: On the final raps from Dark Shadows, a 70m rope just makes it (with rope stretch, using a 70m rope with 9.5% static elongation) from the rap anchor at the top of pitch 2, ending on the gravel bar downstream of the pool. Stationing one person at the downstream edge of the pool and pulling hard from the left should allow the rope to stay dry.
