Bull Pot Rigging
« on: March 20, 2017, 11:44:02 am »
Last week I removed several loose anchors and placed two new ones on the entrance pitch of Bull Pot.

This provides a beautifully simple rigging using a 15m rope and one carabiner. It can be approached safely and there is a ledge which makes it a very easy take-off.

The deviation off the far wall was rather good fun.

That looks a nicely simple hang indeed, can you rethread the 2nd knot and use no metal bits?

Thankyou Simon,

Can I just check for clarity, is the approach from the stream side now removed? Or are both options still useable?

Thanks again

Nevermind bull pot, finish off Car already :). Am willing to lend a hand as always, but don't have any of the bolting gear.
Anything I say is represents my own opinion and not that of a any club/organisation that I am a member of (unless its good of course)

Thanks for the update, Simon. Have some of the huge number of anchors at the top of the 4th pitch now been removed?

The reason why there were so many anchors on the fourth pitch was that instead of removing loose anchors in the past, loose anchors had been augmented by having new anchors installed in-between. We removed the three loose anchors and installed one new one. The new one is one side of the Y hang at the end of the traverse. There are now two anchors fewer on the traverse.

 :thumbsup: I was intrigued by the alternating new/old anchors when I was there last. Thanks for getting it sorted.
