Recent bolting - whodunnit?
Anyone know who did the recent (Sep '12) rebolting? I've a special request - love to chat!
put lower offs on sex haunt at 30m
is that a request to put LO's at the 30m mark or a statement or a question ?
A request. Its a great route, but the last few metres is not worth the top out. As a 30 sports route it would be great
ok. will look into it very soon. cheers
Thanks dude. You can lower off that top RB with a 60m on stretch. It think it must be about 32m. I reckon there a few more lines to bolt (in between the old school trad lines) on that big wall..
some more lines = yeah i thought the same thing, then i saw the East Face rock avalanche and thought ummmm (but maybe.. once the 2 remaining rebolts on the to-do list r done)
ok, go out and climb it and let me know :)
(watch out : mtkeira road closue from 7th nov. to xmass, must use the picton rd or clive bisell to get in)
Cheers. If you want some new lines to bolt come out to the JunkYard cave in Campelltown. Lots of new rock for you :-)
ok, when i get bored of MtK :)
who'd have thought mount keira was the kind of quality rock that could be prone to an avalanche... Ok, amusement over. I read the report but I don't know the roads well - can you still get to the top?
sandstone is not what it used to be ! :)
yes access will still be possible , from the north - via clive bissel drive or picton road
-> Jason : if you do come down this way in the near future. Please, cast your eye over 'The Training Route' (8m, sport, 25) "A route up a steeply overhung short wall on completely manufactured incut holds that appeared in the late 80's. Careful on the 2nd clip, ground fall might be possible."
I'd like to know if those manufactured incuts do work ? CHEERS
-> its ok Jason we found some people to tackle it - CHEERS :)
-> and Sex Haunt is exactly 29.7m high from the very top LO's (with quickdraws attached).. so a 60m rope will work. The 1st pitch is about 20m off the deck.
Thanks mate. Thats awesome !!
So the training route goes? i dont much like chipped holds, they're much smoother than normal rock but was gonna give it a burl at Xmas
Yeah, go for it. One of the local guys is giving it a go, he's got to the send bolt (so far) - he says its "totally worth the effort"
doh! - send = second
