So we should just take a look at it and see what needs to be done.
I think some of the hangers are loose and if we could upgrade the 3/8 to half inch then why not. They do see alot of falls.

Anybody else have any input??

P.S. The rebolting I do will be a SLCA/ASCA project from now on.



The last time I was on it the bolts were ok, just ok. A haggard 1st two bolts no doubt. I think they might look worse than they are, but hey, who doesn't like clipping fatties when spert climbing? Also someone used silicone back in the day to "seal" a couple bolts if I remember right.

Thanks Mike.

they don't look inspiring, esp. if you've gotten used to knew, fat hardware, but they seem to be fine. at least that's what the people who know more about bolts than me tell me.

that said, if there are no other projects for the time being . . .

i bet you're right.

the craftsmanship just wasn't all there.
a reworked monkey route is pretty streamline.

Ya most of it is sams work. I have only done a few on potash.

Flakes of wrath is one of mine.
shame on mike white for thinking cracks shouldn't be bolted in the first place and shame on him for calling it like it is and hurting my feelings.

Just so you know the new bolts on cresent crack were ADDED by kevin lawlor of climbings ARI program. Not me or the asca.
He added 3 bolts to belays in lcc and called it rebolting work.
Every time I see LCC listed in their ARI add it makes my blood boil.

ARI needs an e-mail or two about this.
