I climbed Little Bear via the Hourglass and used the fixed ropes on the ascent and descent. I never fully weighted the lines, but having a solid point of contact with one hand was helpful on the descent. One of the ropes is completely frayed about 2/3 of the way down the Hourglass. The other is in good shape. The anchor looks relatively new and solid. There was water flowing down the middle of the Hourglass.
