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 >>

Comments: Dale Haas and I addressed the problems with the 4th bolt on this route. We added a SS lock washer and applied some silicone seal to the threads, so this bolt should stay tight for a while. We also tightened most of the other bolts on the route.

Comments: The first two hangers on this route were cold shuts. Dale Haas and I replaced the hanger on the second bolt with a Fixe hanger. I snapped off the head of the first bolt while trying to unscrew it, so we replaced it with a SS Powers five-piece and a Fixe hanger. The hardware for this work was provided by the ASCA(www.safeclimbing.com). They appreciate your support.

Comments: No need to do a mantel at the first bolt unless you want to make it harder than 10a.

Comments: Currently, there are no access issues for Storm Mountain Road. You might have to come up US 34 if US 36 is under construction.

Comments: BITD you really couldn't protect the 2nd pitch traverse. There was a fixed pin or two, but they kept falling out and they really only protected the leader. If the second blew the 5.10c moves they were looking at a 25'+ swing into and hopefully, not onto, the Elevator Shaft.
