Topic - Climbing on carrot bolts and other leicester based charms.

comedy_phil - on 04 Jul 2012
So, after having climbed a shed load in the Peak I decided to have a look a little further east and check out the plethora of small rock venues around Leicester/Loughborough area.
There seems to be some very interesting rock types within fairly close proximity of each other and I am determined to get as much of it sent as possible.

I checked out the Leicester climbs online guide, there doesn't seem to be anything new in print. Can anyone shed any light on a future guide for this area?

My other conundrum is based around the use of carrot bolts (bolts without hangers).

If there are any Leicester area climbers who would be willing to share their method of protection with/without the use of these bolts I am hugely interested to know what it is.
I have used stoppers in the past but I aren't convinced they are the way forward, especially on overhanging death walls.

The best answer will receive a picture of a lobster riding a school bus (email copy).
