Didn't notice any glue on the rock, aside from what appeared to be some behind the hangers.

What is with this glue? Nuts are loose on almost every bolt in case anyone remembers to bring a wrench to this place.

The nuts on the first two hanger are loose and backed off. I spun the nuts down by hand but they need to be properly tighten.

so there are actually two routes here now. I am going to assume that the pumpkin king is the one to the right?

The left route has a spinner at the third bolt. skip it if at all possible. Other than that it appears as though these bolts are solid now.

This is a great route, classic looking. FUN!
