Not sure who is replacing bolts, adding chain anchors and what not but thanks. It made the climb a good deal less intimidating. We did the west or SW face route. It was fun to have solid pro where the fixed pins were or at least near where they were. If you decide to clean it up more (fill in old bolt holes remove unnecessary bolts etc.) I hope you leave a of the relics as it is hard to believe folks climbed on that crap. Thanks again.
