I rebolted this crag end-to-end over a three year period in the early 2000's. Pretty well bolt for bolt, old carrots with stainless hex-heads except for Mikl's 25 - Pulse of Fools - on which he asked me to put rings, and Cranky (20), which had rusty home-made angle-iron brackets, which I replaced with rings.

I added bolts to perhaps three routes, but removed bolts on a couple of others and didn't replace them as they were beside excellent micro-cam breaks.

So the number of bolts on the faces pretty well remained constant. I did add a few double-bolt top belays where trees were getting trashed or there weren't any close.

The SRC Access Fund paid for the materials.
