Topic - Harrisons fixed bolt rigging advice

matt fletcher - on 09 Jan 2013
Hi, I have not climbed much on routes with fixed bolts. When at Harrison's a while a go i was baffled at what to do with the fixed bolts so i ended up using 3 pairs of them to rig off.

So most routes have two bolts, one about 10cm behind the other with a cable between them.

How do I use them both but avoid putting all of the load on one of them?

I was always taught to use at least two anchors with the appropriate angles between them. I struggled to understand how i was supposed to do this with the bolt placement at Harrisons

Some advice would be appreciated as i'm heading back there soon and I do not want to damage the crag or die.

Cheers
Matt
