Horseshoe Quarry gets rebolt

School's Out (6a+) on the main wall at Horseshoe Quarry© Chris Craggs, May 2003The BMC has now replaced the lower-offs and bolts on a small selection of Main Wall routes on a trial project.The BMC employed a local roped access to re-equip 6 routes including Big Fat Texan on a Corner, Pale Rider, Waves of Mutilation and Megalithic Man with Fixe 'P' bolts and a new type of 'rams head' lower-off unit. These are safer and easier to use than standard ring bolt lower-offs and do not require a leader to untie and thread the 'sharp end' before descending ? you simply guide a loop of rope around each 'horn' until it sits neatly in the base of the unit and away you go.Full story: BMC Website Diesen Artikel inkl.
