Table of Colors bolt

Post by Dink Dink » Thu Jun 23, 2005 12:32 pm

Recently was out at left flank and witnessed the bolt below teh crux being flung to the ground. It was later put back into position. It didn't appear to land on rocks, but I thought this might be of some concern to people who are capable of climbing it. Apparently the luckless draw offended by not closing on the rope end, allowing the climber to have a longer whip than would be preferred. Regardless, it seem's a bit sketchy to me.

So, was it the bolt or the draw that was "flung to the ground"? And table direct or the orginal line? The draw on the upper crux was pretty hammered looking to me last time I was out there, and I was going to swap it out once I started working on it again.

Ha, someone have a little temper tantrum? All those draws, and esp. the upper crux draw were pretty manky.

No idea, but I don't complain about them when they are there. Makes for a nice zero commitment burn or two.

Zero commitment burns are the best Piggie, you'll learn to appreciate them soon. You ain't at Jackson Falls anymore....you can show up at the load during the peak of a good fall season with only your shoes, rope, harness and a gri gri and get a bunch of pitches in...just like the climbing gym you'll love it oh and don't forget your stick clip.

:wink: :lol:

Actually, I belive there is a "fixed" stick clip at the load as well. But, I would never trust a fixed stick clip - no telling what kind of condition it is in.

Pardon my ignorance, but what is a "fixed stick clip"?
Ticking is gym climbing outdoors.

Stick clip left behind for community use. These are usually a bit economical consisting of tree limbs and duct tape. I believe there is one at Torrent near BMT.

Yep, but the one at the load is a normal pole one with a clamp. Usually seems to be over near the undertow wall...
