Hanger on Long Bolt at Swinburne

We're heading up to Swinburne this weekend. The last time we were there, there was a hanger removed from the aid pitch on Long Bolt To Freedom. Anyone know if this has been replaced? I'll be taking a hanger along just in case anyway.

Hi Josh

I did the climb with Theresa Lourens on 30 April and replaced the hanger. Just to keep it clean I placed the hanger and nut and tightened it on lead without weighting the rope and while freeing the climb.. Thanks to Johan Moelich for donating the nut and hanger. No thanks to the arrogant idiot who removed it, thinking that since he managed to free a 21/22 he is justified to try force everybody to do the same.

Just bitching a bit. :)

Great! Thanks so much Neil!
I'm taking some young guys up there on Saturday and it's good to know they can aid through if they need to (although, even the 13 year old is close to out-climbing me!).
Cheers!
