In these areas where they can get an abundance of rain it's really easy for the anchors to get rusted like that. Talk to the people who put them up and make sure that they have regular maintenance. I've been on a couple trips to Vietnam and had to abort the last climb I was on because I just didn't trust the anchor system. Rusted out and not well taken care of. My solution, in the end, was to find an experienced person in the area to help you find the most reliable places to go. Cheers! -Booker
