Topic - what torch to dry holds off?

steve edwards - on 15 Nov 2012
I've got a project with wet holds that I'm looking to dry off. Any advice on the type of torch to use for this? We Yanks are pretty useless on such topics so I've turned to y'all as I'm certain you're the experts. As I recall, my Peak Bouldering Guide has a picture of a torch in it, few crissakes, so I'm sure most of you carry them as a standard part of your rack.

Essentially I'd like the know what doesn't work. Are some torches too powerful that they'll destroy the rock? Any other drying tips appreciated. I did, a-la Macloed, shovel off a massive pile of snow from the top. This will help but I need to accelerate the process.

Thanks!
