Loose bolt removed Higgovale Quarry (Advice neede)

Post by JoshZA »

Found a loose bolt of "20% for Woodwork" (far right route at "The Peanut Gallery" wall) halfway up, pulled on it a bit and it came right out. Not sure how to deal with it? Bolt looks to be in good condition perhaps? I don't know much about bolting so I took the bolt but can hand it over to someone that can potentially replace it? Is there an organisation I can hand it over to?

Thanks Josh, ARF will make work of it. Glad it was spotted before anything serious happened.

On the upside the bolt looks perfect considering it was placed in 2008 :P

Thanks :) That's great. If you can reuse the bolt let me know and will figure out a way to get it to you guys :)

Can I request that if someone replacing that bolt at higovale quarry that they can put anchors up for poppies route (furthers rights on the polling booth). I was there awhile ago and was about to give the route a go when some guys told me the rock with the anchors fell out about a year ago. I am not sure if they have actually been replaced since but I was not able to spot any anchors from the bottom when I was last there.
