I am concerned about what I found at these routes over Memorial Day weekend, 2012. Two routes were missing there their lower hangers; Between You and Me and Gotta Love the View. Interestingly, the bolts were still there, but the bottom hangers were missing.

Seems to be a recurring issue with people stealing hangers in the Valley. Whoever is doing this is gonna receive some serious bad Karma!

Hangers are missing from Gotta Love the view (first 2 bolts) and JS new 5.11 to the right of Dihedral (1st bolt). WTF!?

We replaced the hangers on GLTV in Oct. 2013.
