Fixe shuts are dangerously worn and need to be replaced.

FIXED SHUTS ARE DANGEROUSLY WORN ( HALFWAY THROUGH) and there are no bolt hangers/ chains . or quick links to bypass the fixed gear. Its my recommendation that this route should not be climbed unit these anchors are replaced.

I happened to be near Malibu Creek with the kids and decided to jump on the routes on Toddler Terrace without checking the beta here. After watching group after group climb, top rope, rappel, lower off of this climb my turn came up. Lets just say that after reaching the anchor I took a quick picture (posted here) and opted to down climb past a few bolts and head over to the next anchor left. The anchor is flexing at this point. I'm from the San Francisco area and was only there for a day, but if any locals would like to swap those anchors out, I'm happy to donate another set.
