6.6lbs is super light for that kind of drill but as soon as you get used to it is feels like an anchor again.....

I beg you were SUPER popular, Jon.
How it go?  How many bolts/anchors were replaced?  Can't see something of this magnitude taking place in the NE.

That would be a sight to behold!  You have enough cred and resources to pull it off, even for NC.  :)

For being such popular areas Cathedral and Whitehorse are littered with old manky hardware. You should bring your pig roast and crew out here next year John.

Eight minutes with a hand drill is VERY impressive! 3.5" no less!

I recently upgraded my drill, 18volt brushless Bosch. Light as a feather and has no problem in granite.

Off topic but we have big plans for upgrading anchors at Wheeler Mt.. So far we have replaced 5 tree anchors with Fixe rings. Even added bolts to a few routes! Dont get to excited Tradman, there will never be any more bolts on The Corner.  :P

I telling you it's a braver and better lead through that section with just the 3 clips. Pin-pin- bolt than it is with pin wire, wire , wire bolt. :-* espically if the wires end up getting fixed..

when the pins were there it was clip,run, clip,run clip for that section. Now it is boogie to the pin, go a few feet and wank in a wire, few more feet to where the pin used to be, wank in a #4 micro and go a few more feet, wank in annother micro wire and then one more move to the bolt. Way sewn up compared to how it used to climb. Replace the bad/missing pin w/ bolt it climbs exactly the same way as it did when the pin was good.

PLEASE oh PLEASE use stainless.  It breaks my heart to see 10 year old routes in the Red with a line of four bolt holes and the newest replacement is another non-stainless bolt.  Worse than chipping, IMHO.
