The last bolt on Things as they are now at Jimmy cliff is without it's hanger. Which is sitting at the base of the climb. I posted over on NE climbs where alot of the FA's post so hopefully it will be fixed. Just a warning

A. I wasn't actually on the route.. just saw it and was told by others it was missing.

B. Didn't have a wrench to tighten it even if i was to go over to that route.

C. The person that told me about it said that he had attempted to fix it but the nut kept coming off (i'm guessing either the threads are stripped or the bolt was too short)

You could come drive out from Montana if you're really worried about it though.

because everyone brings a set of nuts to one of the higher crags at a sport climbing area?

personally it's not a big deal to me.. it's a few moves from the top and they aren't that hard.. if you've done the bottom then you should be fine up top.. it's just not ideal. (probly 5.9 moves at the top of a .12a)
