Joe, finishing up Banana Hammock

Warning Stainless-steel bolts are suspect near the coast. A rebolting effort is underway. MORE INFO >>>


Second route from the far right side of the Nest. Banana Hammock pulls up onto a bulge, and then you follow a 1 foot deep drippy colonette thing up, with the bolts on the left. There was a removable bolt stuck in a hole on this route in 2/07, it looked pretty fixed, probably still there. Pull over another bulge, then climb easy but slick stalactites for an overhanging move to the anchor.


2nd from right in the Nest. Techno Bug is the right most route, this is just to the left of that.

Referring to my notes again... looks like 7 bolts and 1 thread but for some reason I wrote use only 5 bolts. Wish I could decipher that now ;)

Susan, there is an old removable bolt permanently fixed in the wall, presumably from the FA. You can clip it, but that means you're clipping ever 3 feet if you do! Maybe that's what it meant.
