Does the fixed anchor of Crack in the Woods still need replacement? I have been wanting to check this crag out for a long time and wouldn't mind replacing it and giving a bit of a scrub if needed. How is it getting around to the top where you could rap in? and how long a rope would you need to reach the ground single strand?
Also, what is the deal with the old pins on Pumping Station? I would imagine they would be rotted out by now. I suppose it would be blasphemous to even broach the subject of whether they should be replaced with stainless bolts 1 for 1 if modern clean gear doesn't protect it. I haven't even seen a picture of the route, so have no idea, nor do I know Tom's current thoughts. Some are fine with modernizing gear when replacing and it makes sense (like Jimmy Dunn), others take it as a personal affront. It sounds like a great route. It would be a shame people aren't getting on it because the fixed gear is rotting out and it needs a brush.
