Anderson Bolt

George Anderson bolt from his 1877 ascent of Mt. Starr King. George Anderson with James Hutchings and J.G. Lembert climbed the Southeast face of Mt. Starr King unaware that it had been climbed the year before by George B. Bayley and E.S. Schuyler. Anderson and his party were dismayed to find the summit cairns left by Bayley and Schuyler. Anderson climbed using moccasins covered in turpentine to give him extra friction on the polished granite dome. He placed one eye bolt and threaded his rope through it for protection.
