Jordan starting crux sequence at first bolt.


Starts in golden overhung area right of "Waste of Bolts." First bolt is rather high, consider stick clipping. Crux is moving past this bolt. Crimp slab climbing after to anchors.


2 bolts, chain anchors

Spinners aren't categorically unsafe. As long as the shaft of the bolt hasn't come out of the wall then it's probably OK. Next time I'm out that way I'll take a look at it and assess the situation. Most likely the hole was drilled in an area that doesn't allow the hangar to sit flush with the wall which over time will wear away the rock and create a spinner. The bolt is still nearly 5" into the wall and won't be popping out anytime soon under the physics of a normal lead fall at this point however, it is always best to avoid a cavalier approach to any climbing situation. Next time you're out that way take a 9/16 wrench with you to tighten it up - just make sure you don't overtighten it.

Led ground up, no stick clip, maybe it's 11c.
