BOLT BROKEN AT THE GALLERY!

Postby TheEyeInTheSky » Thu Apr 13, 2017 5:26 pm

Hey guys and gals,

Just watched a guy break a glue in at The Gallery Wall. The route is "All Draws & No Brains". It is the second bolt and there is a rock with a "x" on it at the base of the route.

Thank you for your time.

BE SAFE!

Bolt 6 failed due to bolt placed in poor rock quality.

A new bolt has been placed in better rock quality.

Did you get a picture of the failed wave bolt & where it was placed? It would be worth having Ian distribute that to the developers for future consideration.
