Comments: The loose bolt on the 3rd pitch anchor has once again been replaced as of 9/10/12. The bolt was indeed loose and incredibly bent for a modern 1/2" x 6" anchor bolt. The bolt hole was blown out considerably too. I'm not sure if someone has been bungie jumping or slack-lining the P-lunch wall off it or what but there was some serious abuse given to that bolt.

Comments: Please consider using "naked threads" for rappel anchors in the South Fork. It seems most folks use double ropes and this technique is even stronger than using smaller diameter cordage (litter) to rappel on. I've used up to a 9.2mm rope w/o issues. If you don't have doubles and naked threads are not an option, please add a quick-link ($1-$2 at the hardware store) to your threads so more than just a few people can safely rappel off it. Way too many routes out here have huge rat nests of burned... more >>
