Comments: I did not realized a majority of the routes needed some anchor replacement until friend told me the crux bolt for red/white queen is hanging out of the rock partially. Last time was at the Tower was the early 90's.

After having talked with people who have way more bolting experience than I do, it is my understanding that the Glue-ins are the best option for anchor replacement.

Comments: I bolted that in the summer of 1992/93 using Chris Girjavila's drill, Paul May was on belay. Anchors are Stainless Steel bolts and the rest are hardware store 5 piece red heads.

Tim Fairfield got the FA sometime in the late 90's not sure what he named the route. Tom and I called it "Ted's Happy Place" when he(Tom) was working it. Some of the most unique moves I have ever done on lead and finishes with a good long moves over the lip.

Comments: Tom Ellis, Luke Laser and I bolted Number 4. Tom and I bolted numbers 7 an 8. All sometime in late 90's. I can't remember if we named the three routes or not. Not sure who is responsible for the glue on the projects to right of Ride the Lightening as I quit climbing for a period of time shortly after bolting the routes. We also bolted the extension to Ride the Lightening and I think Tim possibly went back and added beefy anchors to the top of it.
