Slip of fools and Condescender
« on: August 21, 2013, 09:26:05 PM »
Anyone been on these lately?  I know some were affected by the old mans tumble, but have things been fixed?

I guess I meant Condescending?  The one that goes straight up from the belay on cnosolation prize?

If it's that 1 pitch climb that goes from the 1st belay of con prize up the nice slab... That did have some bolts sheared off from rockfall. frik and partners replaced some (maybe all?) of the sheared bolts in the last year or two. I'll ask them to comment since I can't remember if they got all of them or not.

Joe, If you are talking about the line that goes from the p1 belay (in the hole) directly up the slab to the 2nd belay, then yes the two hangers have been replaced. The original hangers were badly bent but not sheared, the bolts looked ok.

Joe,
It's good.... but my memory is bad. My friends just told me that we did in fact replace both bolts entirely, also that we did it last year....I was thinking maybe two or three years ago.  From the "hole" belay up to the first bolt is a little R but pretty easy. After that, you're fine.  Your only complaint will be that is isn't longer.

frik I think both your memory and your reading comprehension are bad. Pretty sure BM looked at his notes and determined that we replaced all the hangers but left the bolts, as the bolts seemed fine. I can't be sure either though as BM can barely form a coherent sentence and I can't remember a damn thing myself anymore!
