Location: Cape Town
Real Name: Cormac Tooze
Last w/e Malcolm and I re-bolted "Let's face it" Mischief Slot, Le Pique-nique Area, Oorlogs Kloof, Montagu
Grade is old school, 21; New school, 23; High quality face climbing.
Route was originally bolted with aluminum home made hangers and drop in bolts.
It seems one of the old bolts had popped as was missing, leading to a potential ground fall!

Question: Some body had placed an additional new bolt and hanger at the start of the route, Would anybody know whom placed it?
ARF does Quality Assurance report on all routes it re-bolts and it would be nice to know whom place it and what type of bolt it is, It is in a non critical position close to the 2nd bolt so we left it in

Cheers
Cormac

Great job Cormac. That is a great route but needed to be rebolted.

Never mind new age/old age - 21 was always a sandbag grade for the route. I believe Sean had just started climbing when he opened it and that probably influenced the grading.

There is more potential in that area and it would be nice to see the area developed.
