Clocks anchor failed, needs replacing

Kurt Doherty replied 4 years ago.

The left anchor bolt failed under body weight on me the other day. The right-hand bolt looks fine, but has two 'biners that, although held bodyweight, look utterly terrible.

Jack Folkes replied 4 years ago.

Looks bomber to me. Don't see what the issue is.

Niko Eltarenko replied 4 years ago.

Jesus! Glad you're okay mate. I knew they didn't have long left on this earth, and the condition of the anchor gear is especially weird once you consider the rest of the U bolts which are absolute bombers.

Paul Thomson replied 4 years ago.

This could be tricky... technically its illegal for us even to climb at Balls Head... and im not sure how a hammer drill and some 316 with marine-grade glue will go for keeping a low profile... =(

Matt Minus replied 4 years ago.

Perhaps some titanium, done once, wouldn't need to be replaced ever again? (bonus is that it's a lot duller than stainless!)

Leith replied 4 years ago.

When I've been on Goat Island I barely notice climbers on that boulder and I know where to look etc. The rangers on boats to various spots around the harbour are not on the look out for catching out climbers, at least the ones I've met anyway.

Kurt Doherty replied 4 years ago.

Wasn't aware it was properly banned, though I've just noticed it plainly written in the access issues section for Balls Head. Guess that means there's no need to replace the anchors...

Kurt Doherty replied 4 years ago.

In my defence, I didn't view the area nodes for Balls Head or The Big Block at all on the Crag—I went straight to the Clocks route node, saw a decent amount of recent activity and didn't give access to the area a second thought.

V4-5 finishing on the RH side. Took me a long time figuring out the beta to squeeze off those low side-pulls. Humped the arete for finesse.

JSBC started this discussion 6 days ago.

There seems to be about 6 variants of this arete depending on what you wanna eliminate. To the right is a v1 so you might have climbed half of that

Alexander Jones replied 6 days ago.

I use some meh sloping crimp on the right face but I had the left arete holds the whole way and finished on the arete sloper lip. Not a fan of contrived climbs so I tried my best to stay hugging the arete. Defs didn't do the v0 beside it though. Was techy af and felt like a legit line! Fun as.

JSBC replied 6 days ago.

If it felt v4 then chances are very high you climbed a large part of the v-easy on the right- because that arete is nails. We stayed on the arete the whole way with slopes - then dyno to lip on the right.

18 Flight of the Phoenix Trad 330mClassic

We arrived at Balor close to midnight the night before so had a slightly relaxed start. Finding the start seemed fairly ok and I started climbing at 11. I was feeling rusty so let Ben have the first two money pitches, which mean I ended up spending a lot of time chilling out literally while he went on a wild off-route-finding spree. By the time I joined Ben at the rap it was 2:30 and I'd ended up aiding some moves through the mystery pitons and was deep in type II fun: some combination of too cold / too hot / dehydrated / wind chill / cramping badly. We did discuss bailing from the rap but we forged on prepared to climb at night and I estimated it would be a midnight finish. After a couple pitches the type II fun gradually eased back into type I fun. I "led" the top pitch just so I could say I actually placed a single piece of gear somewhere. As we scrambled over the lip we met hectic arctic winds off the summit. I arrived back at Balor on the dot of midnight Best summarized as we had a 'choose your own adventure'. — with Ben Vincent

16 Lieder Trad 260mVery Good

After a good rest day we were much better prepped and had a proper alpine start for this. Had a tourist chopper buzz us at some point. On the start of the 3rd pitch stemming over the mini waterfall my foot blew on dodgy rock and I tumbled about 5m back to the belay. In hind sight it is probably the worst fall I've ever had but luckily I was barely hurt with just a bruised forearm which has yellowed up nicely since. 'With care' is an understatement of the start of pitch 3. Pitch 5 has a fantastic airy crux and is the jewel in this route. We topped out with plenty of light and back on the ground at dusk, then hoofed it back to the car and home — with Ben Vincent

17 Lieder Trad 270mMega Classic

A very memorable route. Thought it'd be nice to get on and have a nice easy, airy wander up a grade 16.... not quite. A committing route for the grade with sections of sparse protection, moist or loose rock and some really neat exposure. The two grassy ledges were great for a half-height picnic and it was nice to sort out the mess of a description for the end of the 3rd pitch. Skippy took an exciting tumble/bounce down the waterfall face and was arrested by a #5 BD microwire after a good sized block decided it wanted to relocate itself. Really interesting, engaging climbing and totally up there with FOTP in my books. — with Brendan Heywood

18 Flight of the Phoenix Trad 290mMega Classic

What a day out. A late arival to camp had us at the base of FOTP by 10am. In hindsight the route is quite obvious. At the time, however, it was not. Traversed way too far left on P1 and belayed at the big obvious shrub below the corner with two pitons (probably SJ). This meant that we probably didn't even do FOTP P2 but wandered up past said pitons on some other route (probably SJ) and way over and above the P2 belay ledge. I wandered about in circles on the slab 20m above and L of the wing for an age and found a small belay ledge for some other route with an old rusty hex and a sling (likely LD). Down climbed to retrieve my sparse pro before using the corner of SJ do get back onto the ramp and finally located the tat down the R-hand end of the ramp - pretty obvious in hindsight. We probably didn't rap far enough on P3, but found some good med cam placements behind a large hanging block. P4 was great with good exposure. In fading light I took P5 too far up and R and clearly missed the orange rock swinging L. That meant P6 started below some hanging blocks but we spied the nose before sunset and knew where to finish. We got back on route in the dark halfway through this pitch and really enjoyed it and P7. Got back to Balor at 11:30pm and it was all totally worth it - 15.5 hours hut to hut, what a pair of Bungle newbs ;-) — with Brendan Heywood

Updated the route 16 Lieder.
Updated beta description.

Supposed to be quite Ggood. If you want to suss out 'Lieben' before committing to it, this is the way to do it.

Start: About 50m up and right of the start of 'Cornerstone Rib' at base of rightward leading crack system. An obvious R tending traverse that leads toward base of gully beneath two Orange overhangs. This was where the famous photo of Dot Butler (bare footed and with a rope tied around her waste) was taken.

A #4 cam and double set of C3s including smallest is useful ontop of typical rack. Can be done in less pitches. A #4 cam and double set of C3s including smallest is useful on top of typical rack. Can be done in less pitches.
  1. 30m Easily up right. Belay level with or slightly higher than base of gully.

  2. 30m Right and into gully, up grey rock on right keeping left of waterwashedwater washed rock until last unprotected 6m to avoid overhangs, then up to an obvious large platform with a bolt.

  3. 33m Up and around right arette with care, continue up right to grassy ledge..still caring. A wiggly piton on belay confirms your on your way.

4. 34m Right, past small moreton bay fig tree in crack then up to ledge. If taking line further right from crack and belay ledge is grassy with large fig tree, reset belay 12m left on ledge at base of gully (recommended). If continuing up black cracks with fig this is where your pitch would finish. 4. 34m The direct line is right up black cracks past a small Morton Bay fig tree to belay on ledge at base of gully. Alternatively take a better quality line further right from the cracks which ends on a grassy belay ledge with a large fig tree. From here traverse directly left 12m back to the base of gully.
  1. 24m Up gully to waterwashedwater washed crux protected by bolts (visible from belay) though adequate modern protection exists. Hard moves on great (sometimes wet) rock slightly left to belay just left and beneath chimney.

  2. 15m Engaging short face on left to Chimney type gully to a large chockstone.

  3. 18m Bridge up right then out to tree. This is the lowermost and largest of the teatrees in the vegetated gully, protruding over the cliff and most visible from ground. Its trunk is about 1m in diameter and it sprawls with vigour over the terrain you wish to cover at end of an otherwise very good pitch (or two).

  4. 70m Scramble to top on right side of vegetated gully.

I climbed this, and placed the bolts, it was during the last public Festivus. We went down there looking for Todd's rumors of the massive roof crack, we were scared off by it, so this was a consolation. I hope the fixed gear was in alright condition.

I'm pretty sure the "Sharp crimpy face" was climbed on the same day but I don't remember who was there. Maybe Matt Minus ?

Hey Sam May the fixed anchor was great. It's a cool little line that one. I also had a look out right past the fig where it gets pretty airy quite quickly. Totally agree about the roof. I also got up the sharp crimpy face on TR - reckon you get 3 or 4 good goes at that thing tops!

Sam May started this discussion 28 days ago.

Ha, what a coincidence to notice this comment. I belayed James when he climbed this in 2013. He took a rather dramatic lead fall on gear when he ripped off a large flake, the scream echoed for miles.

I also bolted and climbed the route marked as Project #2 here. I regret that a little, probably a waste of battery power and bolts as that was the last Festivus and it might have been better left undone.

Hope you had a good day out on the property.
