NateDoggOG, I thought the roof bolt spinning when you go to clip was part of the challenge... Keeps things interesting =) Is the repel from the top of Jacob's ladder still a bunch of dirty cord? It's been a while, but last I saw, a stainless anchor chain might help.

Also at Pet ... ancient rusty anchors above "Off the Couch". I did intend to replace these myself but probably better if the pros do it.

The anchors on nubile woman should be replaced. The bolts are looking pretty rusty.

the two protection bolts on nicks trick second pitch will need to be replaced soon. That route is still clean and a good way to finish off the day.

There is a large (microwave-sized) block at the top of the finger crack on Claim Jumper (at Nightmare Rock), that needs a trundle. While hanging from the block on the left side it seemed to be solid, but when I placed a cam into the crack on the right and gave a pull, the whole thing flexed in a terrifying way. We didn't have the tools to safely get rid of it, but a warning was chalked at the bottom of the climb.

The big one is gone, it came out easily by hand. I also cleared a half dozen other loose rocks from the bluff, but there are more consitently being unearthed by traffic on the ledges up high.

Murrin - Commonwealth - It’s Not Easy Being Green – 5.10a

One of the anchor bolt nuts came off when I was up top setting up a rap. Saved the nut but the washer fell down the crag. I hand tightened the nut back on the bolt and put climbing tape around it with the note "Nut loose/no use"

Hi all.
I just wanted to bump this post because the S.A.S. is gearing up for a 6th(!) round of mank correction. Please let us know if you've seen any sketchy bolts or anchors recently that need some love.

Anchor on top of King of Rock, and possibly Kangaroo Corner (not 100% on this one) at Neat n' Cool are rusted non-stainless bolts.
