Before I commence with my whiny baby comment, first let me say thank you to Mike and Josh for putting up this collection of routes. Given that most routes at B-Word etc. are 5.11-5.13, it is quite nice to have a collection of routes that are more moderate (this really helps for those of us who have partners that climb at a variety of grades).
That said, what is the deal with the janky anchors on these rigs? At least when I climbed them a year or two ago, the lead bolts were all bomber, but each of the two anchor bolts were studs with one, tiny (dime size) washer holding small link chain on. I had meant to offer up some SS hangers for the anchors, but I moved away before I could do so. I know that the whole "chain and washer" setup has some precedent around here, but I think it is a bummer (I never really liked this setup at B-Word either, but at least there were multiple, larger washers.) Just my two cents.
Again, thanks for the nice routes guys. Cheers.
