These are the summit anchoring hardware consisting of bolted L-brackets, above the Jumbo Shrimp topout vicinity.  Looks shiny new, but not equipped for rap.  Walkoff to climber's right if topping out on The Wind Cries Mary -- somewhat long and roundabout but adventurous fun.  Flaking rope at base of Bleeding Wall, with Lake Arrowhead in far background.  Windy Wall vicinity above the backside parking.  Finger Locks Or Cedar Box.  Day high of only 85 thanks to incoming storm.  Nice in the shade, with lots of overcast clouds as well to keep from getting sun baked in the open.  Leading partway up the starting dihedral of Piton Pooper, above the big Pine Tree Ledge.  18 Jun 2017.
