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 ) 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,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
