Alex Wilson asked me to post a message re the state of some of the bolts at Lost Falls. He and Justin Otlowski have been there recently and found the following issues:
- The three bolt belay that is shared by both climbs at the top of their second pitches has been severely damaged by rock fall: two of the bolts are unusable. (Alex suggests that it would be good to move that station up and left a metre and a half or so to protect the anchors from further rock fall.
- The second pitches of both climbs have been affected thusly:
- One of the bolts on Ride the Dragon has been destroyed
- Two bolts on Black Dawg have been badly damaged and would be very questionable as to their safety. Alex mentioned gaps between bolts and glue and cracks in the bolts themselves.
If anyone wants to make a trip up to fix the the problem I'd be very happy to help out with driving and removing the bolts.
