This was a fun route it had sections of bad and good rock with a couple of long runouts but over all a fun route. Sean

The anchor bolts wiggle in the rock, most holds were suspect, way sketchy, like death trap sketchy.

To Even S... Thought your favorite climbs were the scary one's ( re your personal page),if not then best stay away from here!The rock on the Reef sometimes good sometimes not is all part of the experience.As advised in the introduction to the Reef if one decides to climb here on a regular bases carry a small hand drill and a couple of baby angles.(hand drilling on this rock will often produce a hole too large to hold a bolt)So if you get off route or come to belay bolts that have deteriorated you can help yourself and others by fixing the problem.The belay Even S mentioned has also been used a lot for the 5.10 Cat's Meow sport type route .If lower off's were used when the rock was damp this could cause the bolts to become less secure.However a couple of weeks ago other climbers used this same belay and no problems have been reported ? There are now about 150 climbs on the Reef ...so lots of choice remains for those who prefere a little adventure in their lives.

I think this belay has had some repair
