Way back, maybe the second or third "Eldo Days", Rick Lietner and I worked hard to replace the bogus old bolts. 1/2 inch rawls all the way now, except the anchor.

There is danger of rockfall here. Fall, 2003, a bunch of us ended up running for the now-questionable shelter of the wall when someone else knocked off some big flakes from Ruper. Our gear was dusted by debris. It would have really bad for anyone on the ramp.

The many Californians I've met who thought Eldo was a pile are vindicated again. But if your a good climber looking for something steep yet easy on the fingertips(like the Owens River Gorge) and fairly well protected, then don't miss this pitch.
