I'm posting this here and not in the other discussion going on currently on anchors so as not to interfere with the healthy debate there.

Anyway after leading Never Never Land last Friday, (My first 5.10 lead, Thank you ) I noticed the hanger on the right bolt could spin freely and was maybe a couple millimeters away from the rock.

Seeing that it was probably snug when installed, I'd say the anchor has worked it's way slightly outward. Does anyone have a thought on the need to repair/inspect this anchor. Again, I'm not referring to the lower bolt on the route, but the anchors installed by the preserve.

Since it was installed by the Preserve, why not speak to.. the Preserve about it? Sounds like the bolt may not have been properly torqued.
