Lots of hollow rock on this thing, and several of the bolts are in what I'd call questionable rock. Have your head on tight for this one if it's at your limit.

I agree on the sketchy rock comment. While the movement was good, the rock quality was not good.

I've seen loose rock before, and this is not it. 3 stars!

As of 6/18/17, the left hanger at the anchor is spinning.
