Spent a few hours at Big Rock today. Replaced 5 buttonheads. The "bar" was held in by a 5/8 bolts, which broke off instantly upon attempting to loosen it. I donít think it would have held a leader fall at all! I canít imagine falling on this, my heart sunk on how easy it sheared with so little pressure. Literally, a time bomb!!!

There was also a buttonhead at the anchors that "popped" out with almost no effort.

Climb safe!
