If Wade is establishing new routes, then expect the bar to be raised. 12d equates to the level he boulders at in flip flops.

Someone unscrewed the hanger from the third bolt and left the hanger/quicklink/draw at the base. I found the nut and replaced the hanger with a new draw (I attached the sling that was on there to the first draw on the slab). Just wanted to know why this hanger was unscrewed? Oh, and I replaced the quick link with a big beefy stainless one. So psyched on this route and soooooo close to sending! Thanks for the revival of this crag, Brian!

On Public Enemy/Kinky Reggae, one of the hangers and permadraws DID, in fact, come out of the wall. One of my buddies is working on putting it back in and getting this route back to safe and operational!

Keep a close eye on the bolt hangers on this wall. The steepness contributes to gradual loosening of the nut, and the long permadraws make it easy to not notice loose hangers.

Two hangers/draws actually fell off of Public Enemy. The third draw, counting the first clip on the slab, was rehung, but the fourth is still just a stud. This bolt may be tough to clip on RP anyway, but, in its current state, a fall from the dyno requires a really soft catch to kill the momentum and keep the climber from a hard pendulum onto the slab below.
