Hey Chad. Great to know your enjoying our local crags! Just something I noticed, those rings are for rappeling down and running your rope through them wears them out faster. Next time try clipping some carabieners through the bolts and running your rope through those to maximize the amount of time before the rings need to be replaced. Also you should be equalizing those bolts with a sliding x or codellete especially because you're solo toproping and don't have as much dynamic stretch in the rope as you near the top. It could be quite a load on that 1 bolt if you fell near the top when less rope is employed in the system. Just want you to be safe! Enjoy your time climbing.

Hey Jon thanks will do. I like this place and I live close by. Still learning about equalization and redundancy.
