too late for that advice Kenny.

Its been fun, but this is a pretty good thread. Too much much drift. I am deleting my posts.

Kenny I tried to post up yesterday. When the weather clears, Lets meet up and get on some routes. I think this warm storm won't affect the climbing at the 'fords, at least the base routes.

Hopefully, the legendary micro-climate will allow some excellent cragging. I know of quite a few routes that don't have a real flat top, with no rock above to receive any additional water, other than which falls directly on the climb. So it may be possible. Mr. Personality, located in the first alcove is an excellent arete. Check out mtproj. Ears to You , should be dry as well as some stuff up around the corner to the left of Donnie G and the secind alcove. Topographic and The Hand of God should be dry by the afternoon. D.K.

Bolting experts, a question or two...

Credit: Footloose

What's the theory behind using the little blue plastic piece atop the sleeve? I mean why not just go with the metal sleeve all the way to the end? If you get my meaning...

What say you if I mounted a carbon steel hanger atop an SS bolt, is that a major faux pas in the business?

Thanks for your help.

that plastic sleeve compresses into a gasket of sorts- helps slow the rust factor..



edit: ive installed with and without.. no biggie..


edit : Not sure what you mean by " mount atop an ss bolt"???

If you remove the blue sleeve you may void the warranty therfore opening yourself up to a costly lawsuit

But you're neglecting the 20 sec rule: if you replace the blue sleeve within 20 seconds, you're good! ;)

Ron, I simply mean mixing an SS bolt and a CS hanger (for lack of an SS hanger) - would that get me bitch slapped by you guys?
