Don't know how many people have seen this, but just saw this on 8a and thought people would like it. It sure got me stoked.

Does anyone know what those wire loops with the light green sheaths are that are sticking out of the stone on this route and others at MS?

Kipp can tell you the exact manufacturer, but they are temporary clips put in while bolting to keep the developer into the wall. Don't clip it thinking it would hold a leader fall.

I watched that just recently. I did a search on Vimeo for Red River Gorge climbing:

after seeing that awesome video of The Zoo.

wow...that was a great video. bcombs is right...Rick gave me a dozen of those for temporary placements while bolting cause the wall was soooo steep. They were supposed to be removed when I finished, but for the life of me I couldn't get them out. If someone ever finangles them out, they belong to Rick. I think I ended up leaving 8 of them on the wall..sorry Rick.

I actually think they would hold falls.

Were they something like this?

we used them as temp. fall protection on construction sites where you drill a hole in a concrete wall and stick these in, then you clip your lanyard to it. they work like cams and should be easy to remove as long as you didn't bury them up to the hilt. It's a major design flaw that they can walk back into the hole so far that you can't get our fingers around the plunger to loosen them up.
