I have passed this route up a few times due to the odd anchor setup but I finally committed... And boy was it worth it. This route is full of opportunities for different moves and techniques. My friend and I always bicker when we have issues that its a tall mans route or its a short mans route. This route was perfect, there's a tree and a ledge at the top that makes it a easy top belay. Great climb.
Great fun route. To access the bolts I used a sling on the tree just above the bolts. I talked to an older gentelman there who knew the history very well. He said that hanger has been spinning for about 3 years, the other is a little loose too. They are still solid, and you could back it up with the tree above if you want; I did. The route was great, and several lines that are great options. Lots of chance to explore your own style of climbing and movement.
Many have noticed that the left anchor hanger will spin on the bolt. The nut is as tight as one should be, the hanger is not flopping away from the rock, so it is within safety margins and not a reason to avoid this route. Don't avoid this route, even for the odd difficulty getting down to the anchors. It is not the back-sloped muscle pump of 'Howdy Dude', nor as sandy, and is more plain fun imo than any other 5.7 TR at Pilot.
