Everyone has forgoten, the first bolt that failed was in Montagu. It was an anchor bolt at the Alley, then Silvermine and now Kleinmond. Where too from here???? ARF is going to have to get some very big sponsors if it wants to have a real impact and make everyone feel all bolts are safe, which is the wrong mind set anyway. So, I'm promoting a change in mind set, don't just jump onto a bolt at the first onset of a pump, treat them like trad gear and the good old saying \"you don't fall\" should be revived. We are rock climbing not playing chess, it is a high risk sport, and I do not believe we know which bolt will fail next or under what circumstances. So lets change dodgy bolts, but never take their safty for granted.

Hi,

Will climbing be possible during the bolt replacement on dec 3 at Klienmond? I had a camping trip planned and everything. I'll be there and am keen to help but I also want to do some climbing.

thanks,
Simon :?

Hey Simon - we intend getting as much done as possible so when we are occupied on routes you may need to wait a couple of minutes. However the old bolts will remain unless some motivated people will be psyched to pull them at the end of the day. So come along for a fun day. Please drop me an email for the attendance list.
