Topic - Pulled off the crux hold on Infernal Din, The Cuttings (BETA)

lewiz - on 17 Mar 2014
Hi guys

I started projecting Infernal Din at The Cuttings on Saturday and had begun to make some decent links. Unfortunately on my final go of the day I was pulling through the top crux and about to go for the good crimp by the last bolt before the anchor (hold is roughly where the red circle is at http://imgur.com/O3uGGSr ) when it pulled away in my hand. Took me totally by surprise at it seemed completely solid and I had no reason to expect it would go.

I've had a look at this third crux (which I find the hardest) and can no longer do it from the rope. The hold that came away had a very helpful indentation that I could get my fingers behind that made swinging out onto it possible. There's now very little purchase and I feel it has made this move considerably harder. My guess is the route will have become 7c.

Good news: I have the hold, it's in-tact and fits snugly back onto the wall. Images available at http://imgur.com/3Az4aV3,fh3N0c9#0

What are the options and ethics here? If it is technically feasible I would like to glue this hold back in place but have not done this before and will at the very least need some advice and/or help doing so. Most likely I will be back in Portland on the 29&30 of this month.

thanks, Lewis
