This past weekend, we climbed Jim Dandy....a great climb. From the way the guidebooks talk, we thought the whole climb was bolted (well, something like that). On the third pitch, we could not find any bolts at all. We found the anchors, but no bolts. Did we miss something or are there really no bolts? -Chris

I have not actually climbed past the first pitch of Jim Dandy, but everyone I've herd talk of the route agrees the first two pitches are bolted and the third is trad.

I was just up there and the last pitch has one bolt about half-way through. If you're used to sport bolted routes, the NC boys have a pretty funny idea of a bolted route. They're pretty run out. Hell their class 3 walk offs scare me even more.

I did it in June, and I think you missed some bolts. I remember at least two besides the anchors, but it was kind of run out.

You were off-route. The third pitch wanders to the right in an upward traverse. You are aiming for a tree at the top of the pitch.
