Maskhill Tyrolean Dangerous State!


New member

Myself and a mate took a trip down Maskhill last night to find the Tyrolean on pitch 4 has a very badly coreshot section near the anchor on the west side.

We managed to loosen off the anchor at that end enough to tie an isolating knot, but I thought it best to post for awareness sake..

The rest of the line seemed sound, aside a few nicks on the sheath. Sadly didn't manage to snap a photo whilst down there.
