Still good. Put it on your Indian Creek rack.

Comments: The old ones were definitely plated.
All new hardware going in is stainless 1/2".

Comments: Andrew - pound on that block/flake between the two P1 bolts next time: it vibrates with a resonant 'boom'. Lobbing onto that enticing looking #0.75 Camalot placement may prove catastrophic some day if the block detaches.

Vague potentially helpful beta: keep a little lower as you head right.

Comments: The first bolt has been replaced. The remaining bolts are on the list for replacement, since they are plated steel with stainless hangers. They are 3.5" x 3/8" Rawls which are in average condition (they are somewhat sheltered from the rain) - but they are much better/stronger than many old lead bolts in the canyon. The replacement job will be difficult, since this overhanging route traverses so much and there are no good aid hook placements. A good extension ladder will help....

Comments: I led the 1st pitch Tuesday - it's fun. The climbing is similar to Body Tremors but scarier due to fragile rock.

For the record, though:
The application did not include any bolts on P1, and ACE did not push the issue of P1 bolts in either direction.

That's why I never got around to climbing P1 during the bolt application process for P2. I think P1 is 'R' rated, but that's the choice of the FA.

Comments: In the cleanup last fall, the big horizontal one cut loose when another rock grazed it. Precarious was a good descriptor. Good riddance.

Comments: Replaced the Werk Supp anchor early this morning. It had 3/8" x 3" carbon stud bolts that were getting rusty. Now it has 1/2" x 4.75" SS 5-piece bolts with SS hangers. I put the old chains back on, but plan to upgrade those to SS also soon.

Comments: Take note: that 0.75 Camalot is no longer bomber. The entire kneebar flake at the crux is hollow sounding now.

Comments: Replaced the first and third bolts today - they didn't get upgraded with the rest in 2002 and were quite rusty by now.

Comments: Hardware update for P2: two more welded-shuts on the P2 face have been upgraded to 1/2" x 3" Stainless Power-bolts with Stainless hangers. One welded-shut remains under the roof on P2. We'll upgrade it sooner or later.

Comments: Replaced the 2nd bolt on P1 today by cleanly extracting the stud and installing a 1/2" x 3" SS PowerBolt and SS Fixe hanger.

Comments: Kevin -
Even if a majority of climbers were to think that this rappel is unnecessary, there is a critical difference between this rap application and, say, an application for a bolt on a new route: the park rangers think that the erosion is unsustainable and they asked for a rap route to manage it. That carries weight.

Comments: ACE: Rap bolt upgrade occurred on 11/15/2013.
Removed a 3/8" x 2.5" plated Rawl with Metolius Fat hanger.
Installed a 1/2" x 4.5" SS Rawl with SS double ring hanger.
(The second bolt was already a SS glue-in.)

Comments: Just now saw the comments - I posted this for the benefit of folks who plan to rap the route to get to the base. If you didn't know where to look at all, you might have trouble finding the anchor locations from the top down....
It is a little trippy, though.

Comments: I cleaned the upper #3 Camalot today (it now looks like an aluminum dumpling).
The lower one was elbow deep, but I managed to get it to near the lip. Someone with smaller hands needs to walk it sideways about 3 feet up the crack to remove it.
