4th ringvery loose on 97% Fat Free, Bowen's creek

The 4th bolt sticks out 20mm from the rock, is bent down aboiut 15 mm, and turns 60 degrees side to side. It helds a short fall, but the bolt below has badly cracked glue aroiund it. It appears that (at least ) these 2 rings were inadequately recessed, and that they stuck out about 15mm from the rock. Glue was built up around them to bury the weld and back of the eye. I think this might have been the poxy Ramset geenish/grey glue. When this cracks away, the ring was free to rotate.

Post a message if they get fixed please, I'll take a drill out next time I'm in the area. but might be a year if my performance there last week is any indication.

Just a quick note to let you know that the 3rd & 4th bolts have been replaced with U-Bolts on this Mountain classic.

PS Thanks to Dan Wilde, Jas Piper, Seb and Sung who helped lug all the bolting kit in. Thanks to Climbing Anchors for supplying the U-Bolts

It is inhumane, in my opinion, to force people who have a genuine medical need for coffee to wait in line behind people who apparently view it as some kind of recreational activity

Can't believe that lazy git Piper would carry anything to a crag in that daypack he carries
