Anchor replaced at Garland's Pot
« on: May 26, 2019, 03:17:04 pm »
Hi all, following a report of a loose anchor at Garland's Pot in Giants this week, DCA volunteers have been in to deal with it today. The lower right hand anchor of the 2 back-up resin anchors in the alcove has been removed and replaced. There is a tag on the anchor indicating that it should not be used until at least the 1st of June, as that is the next likely opportunity that the new anchor can be tested to ensure the resin has mixed and set correctly.
Please avoid using or loading/twisting this anchor until the tag has been removed after the 1st of June. If it is tested sooner, I'll update here. There are dozens of safe rigging possibilities at Garlands using the other resin anchors and drilled threads, so this should not affect cavers greatly.

If you have any anchor concerns, please report them to the DCA. Some information on the most helpful way to do this can be seen at:

Many thanks
