It appears that a clever sport climber has finally found a use for trad gear, ha!

So, what do the bolts look like? Or are there any?

If you're going to put the effort into bolting a quality line, you should spend a few bucks to give it a quality anchor. That said, I didn't mind lowering off it even though I was sketched by the picture beforehand. The cables were in good shape, the bolts are fine, and there was little risk of the cables slipping off.

Why couldn't they have at least used a larger nut with beefier wire? That looks like a #4 or #5 Stopper, only like 5kN or 6kN for the wire. A KB or LA with a hole drilled makes a much cooler hanger than these wires.

Anchors on Castles Made of Sand that could use replacing. The wires are actually glued behind the washer making them a touch better.
