Comments: Rap anchor status as of 4/14/13:

Purple/pink cord (which has been there since at least October 2012) is getting old and should probably be replaced sometime soon. Blue 9/16" super-tape was looking relatively good.

Rap ring still looking good, someone had added some camo-colored 5mm cord to back it up. I retied the cord to a doubled loop.

Comments: Guess not many folks get on this one... very dirty, lots of lichen, and we were breaking off flakes and chunks of rock left and right.

Also, there is a large, 3-4 foot flake just inside the middle dihedral (about half way up) that is very hollow and it won't be long before that sucker pops out of there, hopefully not taking out the climber or belayer in the process.

Comments: Climbed this today and cleaned up the rap station (small rock pillar just beyond the trees).

Removed one piece of blue webbing with all sorts of strange knots (referenced by Craig C., perhaps?). Retied some purple cord and newer blue webbing into a uniform system with the rap ring (could use a second one, though).

Comments: Got to the top and found only one anchor. Didn't realize there were chains just over the edge, so I down-climbed to the anchors on "Pee on Dee", then down-climbed, and back-cleaned all my draws.

I'd recommend changing out the one ring anchor for a standard hanger. That way folks will know to continue up until they get to the chains.

Comments: Nice route with some fun moves, but if you fall while leading the middle slabby section you will probably hit the Pile Driver ledge.

One should consider this a "no fall" zone until you get a piece in the black water-stained crack on the right.

Comments: Clay Frisbie (FA) calls this 10d, Cole Fennel's book says 9+. Felt like mid to hard 10 moves getting off the ground and again past the first bolt.

Comments: Anchor status as of 5/6/12: removed faded blue/white cord, red/blue cord looked good/recent so we left it. Added new cord (dark blue/light blue) and tied together as one anchor.

Comments: Sorry, but that's a bowline WITH a bight, not a bowline ON a bight.

BOAB has no tail like the one you have your biner clipped to.
