Pole Dancer first bolt.

I was out at Cape Raoul yesterday with two friends and we missioned out to do Pole Dancer. Both the people I was with had done the route before. While I was climbing the approach chimney pitch up to the platform below the pole I noticed a nut that looked like a bolt head. When I got to the climb the first bolt (directly above the anchor about a meter up) wasn't there and just a small piece of the carrot hanging out with no bolt plate. The bolt came out of the wall when I inspected it. Not sure how long it's been like that but the start of the pitch is pretty goey above the chimney without it. No one I talked to before going mentioned it.

Safe climbing!

Hobart 2018 - 20xx

Hi everybody,

just moved to Hobart and started a PhD after being a short while around here last year. Looking for motivated climbing partners in Sport and Trad. I'm climbing low to mid 20s at the moment. Really love to see new stuff and go exploring as far as my schedule permits me. Don't mind a short Fruehauf session in the evening as well.

Love to hear from you: jeroen5446 at or 0490209215

Cheers, Jeroen

Nesting swallows

2 Nov.Swallows are nesting  just below the overhang on the The Plebeian (23) on Plebeian Wall at Sand River, Would be good if climbers could avoid routes in that area for a while. Thanks
