I was on a few North Sea sacks in the summer, Old Man etc. And I've haven noticed that the things are falling to bits!!

I've got together a few keen young lads willing to help me make these routes safer, and more enjoyable, with placing a few bolts on some of the loose sections and crux etc.

The problem is, is it worth using bolt that you set in, or expansion ones so we can replace when the sea salt eat them!

In reply to Steve (The Steve): I will do some research on the type of bolt and post back. All i would say is space them evenly...say every metre??

In reply to quirky: EVERY metre? I would say closer so you can aid easyer through the crux.....
