Rusty 3rd Bolt on Geezers Go Sport in the Zoo

Post by thermalfissions » Wed Apr 30, 2014 4:03 pm

I know there are strong opinions about the 3rd (or lack of a 3rd) bolt in Geezers go Sport at the zoo. (Personally I like the way it is--that's the way it was set and if you can get to the second bolt, you're a good enough climber that it shouldn't be dangerous to continue to the 3rd bolt, despite the runout). That's a moot point.

Last time I was on the route, I noticed the 3rd bolt and hanger were looking rather rusty. Considering that if that bolt breaks, it's a groundfall from ~45 feet, it made me rather worried about it... It seems like an unsafe situation. I don't know who to contact though about replacing that bolt. I'd chip in for it, I just have no idea who to contact or how to do it.

Thanks
