    Some of us on the RAT-SAR team placed several much-needed bolts at Buck’s Pocket State Park (with the park’s blessings). Although most rescues and recoveries are performed by other teams at the park, the bolts will make future rigging cleaner, safer, and more efficient. After rigging it we figured we needed to test our work so we bounced the long drop side. Awesome winter spring time day.

    Yeah, I think you climbed this one. About 120'

    Seems about right. The anchoring rock looks familiar.

    Yeah, we didn't use that rock when you were here. Since it was just a bounce yall were doing we rigged off a tree close to the edge. Tree doesn't work for rescue though since it's too close so the new bolts are now the rescue anchor.
