Thanks Ken, That is awesome. I can't wait to go back and climb to the new setup.

Thanks Dave! Too bad the weather has been so cold!

Here is what we used from Home Depot in Golden:

1/2" Quick Link, rated to 1498kg, used to attach hook to bolt hanger or existing rings, $4.17. The links don't get worn and won't need much future replacement.

3/4" X 4-1/4" Winch Hook, rated to 1,134kg, can easily be replaced in the future, $4.77.

And paint too.

Winch Hooks from Home Depot installed on Golden Cliffs. See my comment below for details of what to buy if you want to help solve the problem of worn anchors. The quick links and hooks can go on Fixe rings too. Just clip in and lower. Much thicker than "fixed" carabiners and easy to replace.
