Sketchy anchors on Lost Ledge

(1/6) > >>

danf:
Took my kids up to Lost Ledge last weekend and climbed a couple of the easier routes on the Carpet Slab.  Some of the "anchors" up there are more than a little sketchy, and I'm sure I'm not the only one with that opinion.  Just wondering what everyone's thoughts are about replacing the existing 1/4" bolts/homemade anchors with modern stuff?  I've drilled lots of rock, but can't say as I've ever done it attached to a rope so any insight anyone can give would be great. 

Just so everyone is clear, it's stuff like this that I'm talking about:

I agree, it wouldn't be a bad idea to replace those puppies...

if someone wants to go out and replace these anchors, they can get them from the MRS.

You sure? A friend was going to replace some anchors and was denied. Do you have to be well known or something? (Friend is competent with anchor replacement, but none of us are well known in the area despite being weekend warriors for years.)
