The top anchors to this climb and the others on Newt Wall are intact, both are two bolts with hangers. They are a little close to the edge.Bring a daisy chain to be safe when setting a top rope. The lead bolts for The New-tist Colony are hangerless but not chopped.

The longest lead at Wagon Caves. The bolts were put back in in 2004. Let's hope they stay there. All three routes on this rock are a lot of fun. The anchors were placed so close to the edge to deter non-climbers from tampering with them. Use caution, and it is no big deal.
Note: I knocked the fingernail clean off my finger while hammering in the anchors.
I had one eye on the void and one eye on the rock, trying to find a solid place to put in a bolt... bam bam bam smush. OUCH.

Second bolt was completely loose .. Tightened it best I could with my hands but it certainly needs fixing - rest were good.
