My brother Mike began to ascend the old aid line on the exposed West face. I made hangers out of aluminum angle stock and drilled holes in them to accept carrabiners. After getting a good way up, Mike noticed that the next two bolts were rusted nearly all the way through. After spending some time trying to figure out a way to the next good bolt he bailed. I was there last Summer (2006) and the hangers are still there. We were crazy back in those days.

You live in Nevada and go climbing in Illinois?

Thanks for the beta re the rusted bolts.
