This is a public discussion in Mount Alexandra.
Interested in rebolting controlled hysteria 25 in the main cave. I don't have the ability to do so myself but very interested to learn and to help out with cost.
Some old and rusty expansion bolts put me off what is a fantastic climb.
They are only 25 years old!
Real tricky to rebolt. I can lend you a drilll and shout helpful advice at you from the comfort of the ground .
I'd suggest this isnt the route to learn to bolt on as its steep and complex (and a classic that would be a shame to be messed up). Matt, it should be sinple enough for you and Simon to do this woukdnt it? Just aid on the original expansions to place the new bolts, then come back a day later and remove the old bolts.
I wasn't planning on bolting it myself as I have no knowledge of bolting. But would love to be apart of the process in anyway to learn!
Yep its not that hard - just hard work.
It should help with the broken rib recovery
I'd be happy to run up the rope and bolt it... I might need help getting the rope up on a 25 though!
Im happy to help in anyway I can. I've done the route a few times, can get up without taking any falls on the rust. I'll be psyched to see this route with a rebolt.
Let me know when you plan to do it. I would love to watch and learn! Adam Rabjohns
I'm off to new York this Friday for 3 weeks. I'll aim for a few weeks after I get back. Try and remind me
Did any of you kind bolters ever get around to this one? I was planning on heading out that way sometime this weekend.
Not that i know of Sean
Matt summed it up.
It would be so great for someone to reboot this classic! Please let me know if you need help with glue etc!
