/ In-situ threads replaced in Huntsman's Leap
I replaced the threads on Mythical Monster (there was 8 in-situ - almost a clip up!), Beast From the Undegrowth, the three threads just above the ground on Feeding the Beast, Scorched Earth/Another Day has new threads, as does Scare City (thinking it was Head Hunter, only to find out later that it wasn't). In addition the threads on Bloody Sunday are in good condition.
So, if ever there was a time to go to the Leap, it is now!
Well done mate
Which route is Scare City?
Well done Dan. Mind you, someone is bound to come along and complain!
Very public spirited Dan, well done.
I don't recall any in-situ threads when I led Beast From The Undergrowth though. I placed a few of my own, notably at the start of the traverse left before the crux. It was a long time ago so I might be mis-remembering.
Many thanks. I did Mythical Monster the other day and spent ages backing up every old thread.
Terrific job, much appreciatedc
Dan the man.
Remarkably public spirited of you - nice one
Jake, you'll walk up Scorch the Earth/Another Day, I expect you to come back claiming it to be a path.
The threads on Mythical Monster were in a pretty grim state and in desperate need of replacement. Scorch/Another Day threads were not so bad (and in fact I didn't replace the one on the top wall as it looked fairly new still).
Originally, Beast may well have not had any threads in-situ but when I did it a couple of years ago there was either two or three, I forget. I replaced what was there already, didn't place any new ones.
Is there a case here for a bit of innovative gear;
the pasbury thredklip -"tired of clipping bits of dodgy tat? can't be arsed to abb down and preplace? hate fiddling about with threads on lead and giving yourself a good excuse for failure? - deploy the thredklip with built in coathanger wire and boom you're good to go!!!
Thanks; much appreciated. You should get offered lots of free beer in the St Govan's Inn for this
Really psyched for Mythical Monster now - thanks!
> Well done Dan. Mind you, someone is bound to come along and complain!
Having done Mythical Monster the day before and Scorched../Just Another.. the day after Dan's efforts I'm certainly not complaining!
Well no, I was referring to the folk who gave him shit for replacing old worn out insitu belays/abseil points in the Peak, a few months back.
Yes, that would be ideal, though i haven't actually climbed any of them so i'd rather not log them. I guess i could put a comment on the crag page though - I'll do that.
A bump fr those that may have missed this the first time around...
Good effort Dan, good to see you're putting your love of abseiling to good use. Future BMC president?
Basically, the biggest you can fit through it.
If you can only get some thin cord (4mm for example) will it go through a few times?
