how are the anchors on west side story on cottontail as far as fisher tower anchors go. I don't mind some mank, fof, col.se ridge, ps, but on North Chimney on Echo, they were just down right dangerous.

I did west side story in May. Aside from AA, it is my only other Fisher Tower, (have a hard time finding partners...) But, I didnt think they were that bad, (granted we had a bolt kit and some pins with us, but used none) It was usually 3-5 star drives/ 1/4 inchers with usually 1 "better" bolt/ pin. There is atleast 4-6 peieces at every pitch anchor. The summit rappel, (1 short 50 ft rap) was probably the worst, I flicked a 1/4 inches and all the mud blew away and the "bolt" fell out. There is however 1 hangerless 3/8 next to it. So thats all you get. Also, there is a bomber ledge at all but 1 belay, so the friction at the edge might help. And bring a stick clip. Enjoy! -Matt
