Comments: On May 29, Dale Haas and I replaced the old, worn hardware at the anchor with stainless steel quicklinks and rings. The hardware for this work was provided by the American Safe Climbing Association (ASCA - www.safeclimbing.org). They appreciate your support.

Comments: My comment from the route to the left of Time Travel called Night Grooves...

"The last bolt on this route can be easily clipped from Time Traveler. On one hand the FA party has altered the character of an existing route. On the other hand, Time Traveler now actually does have two bolts, instead of the original one bolt, so all the incorrect guidebook information stating that the route has two bolts is now correct. Kind of a conundrum."

Comments: I thought that dihedral was right-facing. Is that photo reversed?

Comments: I felt this climb was in the 'hard 5.11' range. We climbed to the left of the bolts. Didn't Paul Piana do the FA?

Comments: In October, Dale Haas and I added chains to the existing anchor to lengthen it a bit and distribute the load better between the two bolts.

Comments: The second pitch is more of a squeeze chimney than an off-width. Traditionally this pitch was done with just a poorly placed lost arrow for pro. You probably need some really big pro to properly protect it.

Comments: I've done the third pitch! Yup, it's loose and in the mid-5.10 range.

Comments: Many of you who think the first bolt on this route is too low are not climbing the route as described by Kirk Miller, who did the FA. If you read his description, you climb up to the first bolt from around the corner to the left very close to the start of Root Canal.

If you come in from the left side of the arete, you will appreciate the first bolt. If you start the route by climbing up the lower angle slab on the right, you might find the first bolt unnecessary.

Comments: Dale Haas and I added a second belay bolt (3/8"x3.75" SS Powers 5-piece bolt) to the top of this climb. The other belay bolt was a 3/8" SS stud without a hanger, so we added a hanger there as well. All work approved by Boulder OSMP.

Comments: Dale Haas and I replaced the single bolt anchor on top of this climb with two 3/8"x3.75" SS Powers 5-piece bolts with Fixe double ring hangers. All work approved by the Boulder OSMP.

Comments: I believe the previous comment about the top bolt not having a hanger is incorrect. The bolt stud without a hanger is actually the last bolt on Hammer of Thor.

Comments: The missing Fixe ring hanger at the anchor is actually on the route just right of Isle of the Dead called "Dead Again." Ron Olsen and I replaced the missing Fixe ring hanger on "Dead Again". I also tightened down the two anchor bolts on this route.
