The first bolt after the beginning crack section is in desperate need of replacement. The bolt is spinning, bent, and there are obvious "spider-web" cracks running out in all directions from the bolt hole. This bolt protects the entire trad section, and if it were to blow, one would take a substantial fall onto their last trad piece.

Rock Climbing Photo: The bolt in question
The bolt in question

So this is the bolt in question. It looked and felt bomber, and I jumped on it a bunch. There's also a bomber #2 placement 3 feet below it, so this thing is good to climb. This is the only SMC hanger on the route and all other bolts are big and solid looking.
