Royal Arches rap route : LUSENET : Mountaineering : One Thread

Although I enjoyed the last pitch of R.A. I'd like to avoid the long walk home next time. So, the beta I'm seeking: Have the bolts on R.A. rap route ever been replaced since original placements? 1/4",3/8",...? Button or hex? Comfy stances? Obvious route? ect.. thanks

Wayne, the route is fairly obvious, especially the top 5 sections from the top of the route down to the huge ledge below. The stations are all solid with 2 or 3 3/8 inch bolts. On the first rap, be sure to head way over to your left, or you will miss the next station and be hung out to dry... After you reach the big ledge, tend to keep to your left (as you are looking down into the Valley), the rap stations are mostly slings around trees from there on down. YOu can cut out one or 2 of the raps if you use 2 60-meter ropes....
