History

Does anyone know the history of the old sport route going up the left side of the cave up through the prow?

All I can tell you is that it's been there since the late 80's early 90's and there used to be a couple of bolt ladders up the middle from back in the 70s when people thought that aid climbing was fun

Ah cheers Adrian, it looks like a decent line, I was thinking about rebolting it, and potentially and extension along the roof just under the lip

Yeah the aluminium fixed hangers aren't inspiring!

I was thinking about this the other day, I don't think you'd put too many noses out of joint if it was done properly.

Ziggy Samways replied 4 months ago.

main thing would be to place the first bolt high enough so that it didn't affect any of the boulder probs.

Sam Small replied 4 months ago.

Yeah that's a fair point. I would probably just rebolt it almost the same as it is now just with stainless U bolts.
