Sandmann on the FA. Try to ignore the shaky hands.

Hard bouldering! Scott must have run out of bolts.

Ya it could probably could use an extra bolt there at the end, easy climbing there though haha. Glad you liked it Ray! -Scott

If this was bolted on lead (which it wasn't), I could understand the runout at the top. There is no reason why there shouldn't be another bolt.

Surely it can't be any more run than Grim Reaper?
Cromper said on April 15th, 2015
Ya I agree with ya shadow, next time I'm at the deep end I plan to add one on this and on adult swim.

Can't be worse than the run to the chains on Re-Animator Shaddow ;). Ian

I put another bolt going to the anchors on this. No more terrifying run out.
