New anchors and re-bolting at Lower Baldy

No sign of Wilma, though I made sure my climbing companion was wearing more vibrant clothes than myself.

A rap station down Cactus would be good. We had to leave behind a bolt plate and biner last year and rap off a single bolt after being suspended in space; though the stories a bit more complicated than that and involves not having double ropes, not reading the guide book, starting very late in the day in the rain, and climbing with Neil.....

I think if you go up and left and traverse a bit from the top of Cactus, there are some better trees that you can still reach the half way anchors above Agent Orange on double 50's.

Still, a new rap route for Cactus et al is on the cards. Either down the wall where Flying a Kite goes or otherwise maybe down Prickly Pair?

The other weekend I saw tat wrapped around the bush on Dan the Bulldog! That bush has only been there less than 10 years!! There are half way rap chains to the right and up a bit.
