Dale Haas and I replaced the two protection bolts and two anchor bolts with 3/8"x2.25" SS Powers/Rawl 5-piece bolts. We added quicklinks and rappel rings to the anchors. This work was sponsored by the American Safe Climbing Association (www.safeclimbing.org). They appreciate your support.

Never did this climb before yesterday, but it's a worthwhile climb and the new anchors are awesome!
