Locals and interested parties, please pipe in.

Who among you is interested in replacing some old bolt anchors in HVCG? There really aren't that many, the top of my list includes the 2 bolt anchor atop Toe Jam & Bearded Cabbage. Methinks these would pull out nice and clean, and the holes could be re-drilled and thus re-used.

Why hasn't this been done already? I'm aware of (some) of the bolt & chop history, but for those anchors that (nearly) everyone agrees on?????? I'm sure someone is getting my drift.

Maybe that lead bolt on Bearded Cabbage as well? It's a spinner and looks at least a little dated. I'm not the best bolt evaluator though.

Not sure if it's been fixed, but one of the bolts atop Intersection Rock for the North Overhang anchor is removable with your fingers. Remember to pull down and not out when you begin your rappel. :shock:
