Topic - Tintern Quarry Thirty Foot Wall - warning

Rick Sewards - on 10 Mar 2014
Hi all

I've had a report that the lower-off on the route Box of Tricks on Thirty Foot Wall may be unsafe, and for that reason the route is best avoided until someone has had a look at it. Essentially a climber dislodged (thankfully without any injuries) a microwave-size block from underneath the lower-off, but the removal of this block has called into question the stability of the chunk of rock above holding the lower-off bolts.

I think I've got time to go have a look this afternoon, so may be able to confirm this report later. If it needs re-drilling someone else will need to step in I'm afraid - outside my field of expertise!

Cheers

Rick
