Not quite sure, but I don't think this actually has any bolts on it(?). All I remember is the chossy crack at the top where you put gear in and pray it doesn't get any harder.

You use the first 3 (maybe 4 with a long runner) bolts of Crank-n-Go-Go and then move left along the crack. Very dirty, but the gear is OK.

Lead this one on gear this past spring, and it went, but the bottom was a little run out. Bring some small nuts.
