Both Metolious anchors are spinning at the moment. If someone wants to bring a wrench and tighten them down that would be awesome. If they don't tighten, they will need to be replaced.

Good for a beginner lead, with lots of rests between sections of steep crack climbing. Jamming is generally much easier than laybacking this route.
