|Right of Pitfall is Cockpit (5.9+) and has maybe 3 bolts and joins Pitfall at the run-out last moves. Around the corner to the left is The Gay Germans (5.10c) with a couple of bolts and a short crack section.|

Surprisingly great routes on this little face. Pitfall (11c) always makes me think and Cockpit (9+) is a great warm up. I belayed Too Strong on Pitfall before the bolts where replaced, scary. Thanks to whoever replaced the bolts.
I am curious, what's the deal with the recent installation of the two bolt anchor and glaringly loud chains on a sub-face to climbers right (Hurricane)? The crack that leads to these bolts is less then 25 feet and doesn't seem very note worthy for the visually loud hardware which is front and center for visitors to see? So many options exist for building anchors, natural anchor in the crack to the left, Pitfalls bolted anchors with a directional. At least a paint job on the new hardware?

|This is a late response, but if I remember correctly, during one Joshua Tree trip (must've been before 2010) there were a number of people present in that vicinity shooting either a commercial or music video. I believe the anchors were added as part of that project, but that's only because I remember seeing some of the personnel using them at the time. If it's the anchor I'm thinking of, it's very visible from the parking lot on the right side of the place where Pitfall tops out. From its description though it sounds like maybe Hurricane always had a bolted anchor. Maybe it was just updated?|
