Comments: I think it is very important to point out that this area is a *designated* area for gun enthusiasts with signs indicating that shooting is permitted. This isn't just an area where people come to party, congregate, or camp and sometimes someone brings a gun. This area is *designated* for shooting so expect people to be there shooting, and since there is no specific gun range, expect them to be shooting near you and hopefully not at you!

Comments: The anchor bolts are no longer loose. Someone tightened them before me. I loosened them, put on some thread locker, and tightened them back up.

Comments: That actually looks like a screw/quick link and not a cold shut which is being cut. Was it possible to unscrew the link rather than cut it?

Comments: In June 2014, Dale Haas and I replaced the cold shut hangers on the anchor bolts with SS hangers. We added SS quicklinks and rings. The American Safe Climbing Association - ASCA (www.safeclimbing.org) provided the hardware. They appreciate your support.

Comments: Here is some info on the new anchors which appeared on this route, along with the added protection bolts, in 2013. These bolts and quicklinks with smash links were designed to create a fixed rappel route down from the top of the climb. They are painted a camo green color.

There is an anchor at the very top of the climb. The next anchor can be found about 50' down the slab at a ledge on the right. The next anchor is about 100-120' down and right. They are next to an old twisted juniper tree... more >>

Comments: Dale Haas and I replaced 9 of Craig Leubben's original 11 bolts on this route with 3/8" SS Powers five piece bolts and ASCA-stamped Fixe hangers. For those keeping count: there is one bolt on pitch 1, five bolts on pitch 2 plus two bolts for the anchor, one bolt on pitch 3, and two bolts on pitch 4.

The only bolts we didn't replace were one belay bolt at the top of pitch 2 and the second protection bolt on pitch 4. Both these bolts were already SS Powers 5-piece. BTW, the final bolt on pitch... more >>
