The Hatchet

The Hatchet

Apparently an unfinished project (abandoned due to the very weak rock), we had no knowledge of this as all three of us could have sworn we saw all the bolts leading up to the anchor. Once on the route, the metallic shine above the fourth bolt morphed into some odd coloration in the rock. The sixth? Must've been one of those retractable hangers.... Don't think there was anywhere to place pro, not that we had any, and if we did, we didn't feel too good placing it in mud. Why did we climb it? This photo op of course! (Well no, it did look solid at first). So here's Robby cleaning the route after I bailed in frustration. He's placing a screw-gate ring ($0.25 at the hardware store) in the fourth hanger so we can keep our last draw and let him down at the same time.
