Sean - the pic is of a short ~10 foot outcropping that everyone hikes past on the way in. The landowners did some testing of various bolts on the Corbin sandstone to determine what was most appropriate for use in the area.

That's some bomber sandstone; except for those two that pulled. Looks like one of the hangers failed as well. I wonder how much force was applied before fail. Was a load-cell used?
