Ooops, I'm sorry, I mean to say "Bring your own hangers and nuts"
Someone has bolted 9 different spots for top roping, and the bolts are good and solid, but they dont have hangers or nuts on them.
The bolts are 3/8".

They may very well have been removed for safety reasons.
You would be a fool to not find out the full story before committing your life to them........

Call me a fool, but the cliffs are only about 20 feet, and I''l probably end up soloing most of them... all of the bolts look and feel great.

Seriously

Reusing hangers, and nut per climb is dangerous and stupid idea cause not everyone knows how to properly torque the nut and eventually, this could lead to loose bolt, loose hole and popping bolt and hanger. local climbers need to find other solutions rather than bring your own meat and bread to restaurant to have a steak sandwich.

If you don't like it, don't climb it.
I just posted this so that anybody living in the area that was looking at the Dead Cliffs routes would know that the bolts don't have hangers. I've looked at them and they are safe enough for me. Every climber has to decide on his own what is safe and what isn't.
This is the only place to climb in my city, so I'm going to do with what i've got. I bring my own hangers and nuts when I climb there.

Thanks for the info and for the beta making climbing at the location safer. I hate it when some people get all high and mighty about things on the internet instead of realizing that something is meant as helpful beta. 20 ft you mine as well just bring some crash pads and boulder them.

Thank you, and I definitely agree.

Also, I would not recommend this climbing "destination" to even my worst enemy, because it is really just a rotten place to "climb." Unless you get an itch to climb and can't make it to Boise, don't waste your time here.. Whether you are slipping on the cheat grass, stepping in poison oak, or getting frustrated with the awkward height of the climbs, you may want to wear a full face mask to avoid the intense exposure to the dirt and moss as it billows out of every crack and crevice..
Also, crash pads are an option, but the landings are really awful on most of the routes here.. However, the routes are insanely easy, so it's not a big dealio.
Hope this helps, and I'm sure my words will inspire you to check out this world class destination.

There are crags around here that have missing bolt hangers. Sometimes, the whole climb is hangerless. Turns out the reason for this is the climber that originally put the climbs up pulled and reused the hangers on his newer routes.
Cheap ass!
