    These notes from a friend after a recent descent of Isaac via Gunsight -

    Message: Hey Tom, just wanted to let you know for your guide that the raps at the end are done easily in two stages with 130-140 foots lengths for each. The climbing anchors down half way are in excellent condition. The first anchors are getting very water worn and need replacement. I might suggest if someone did the replacement to put them on slightly overhanging wall ldc same general spot as current anchors.


    Tom:
    Okay, thanks for the update. Do you have a picture of the intermediate anchor by any chance? Tom

    You know I wish I had taken one. It was SMC hangers and 3/8 studs with nuts. Probably Middendorf? Very little rust for 30 years and they were drum tight. Hangers didn’t spin and they were out of the watercourse. Stance only conveniently accommodates 2 people.

    Here is a picture from the top of that big drop, showing the rock around them is badly eroded.

    Bolt in Isaac.
