As scary as it looks, there are many more anchors out there that are a whole lot scarier!!

Another reason why I like to put up and climb my own routes.

That's awful!
Looks like the area activists need to go investigate other anchors by " W. Peterson & L. Hadfield" placed around 1992.

To answer Mike's question, it was screwed into a sleeve which was somehow installed into the rock. Couldn't really tell what was holding the sleeve in place. Magic maybe?

This was one of the anchor bolts! When taking into account the washers and chain, the stud was in the stone about 1/2". However I am sure the silicon had some adhesive value:)

The anchor has been replaced courtesy of ASCA.
