Yikes! Magnet test! Pretty sure the Geezer stuff wasn't stainless steel. And, they used a gob of those Fixe plated/pre-painted.

The plot thickin's...

Wonder if the "Geezer" FA crew would be taking retaliation out like this, just because we didn't defend keeping the bolts next to cracks theory like they did..? Only a theory...So don't start getting your panties all in a bunch.

Can't say that I've meet them so I shouldn't just drag them into this.

I got the first armless/handless toprope on this years ago. Let us rejoice that these new bolts will be pulled. There is NO excuse, even for the first ascentionist to add such lame bolts.

Seriously, we need to stop bickering and defend our wilderness.

This bolt, a recent addition only 2 years old, is already a spinner. So are many of the other recently added bolts on this route. I hand tightened the nuts but they stop before tightening down on the hanger.
