No kidding? There was some concern and "faith" when I belayed Bruce off of that $hit and an upward-pointed HB can in a small flare on the ledge while he climbed up with a drill and batteries in his pack. Then lead over it on a runout crux to make an anchor above for him to hang on while drilling, so he could lean back. That was cause for some "faith" alright. Anyway, that's why we put in a fat 1/2" one in its place. A factor-2 on that is better than what was there.
