Does anyone have any knowledge of the current state of the bolts at St Bees at all? Going by the logbooks some haven't been climbed for some time!
Thanks in advance.

Great place. Was there a couple of weeks ago. Lots has been re-bolted. Some lines are bolted in a style reminiscent of a slate quarry. Bouldering looked great too.

Some are good and some are bad. Mostly you can see from the ground. A few routes on apiary wall were re bolted a few years ago but the re bolted seems to have lost momentum.

If you have not been before Go! There is plenty to keep you going. The bolting can be a bit old school and the grading unique. Consider taking a Clipstick and a copy of the beano to stick down your trousers in case of a spanking.

Make sure you stay for sunset.

I replaced the lower off tat on Dreaming of Red Rocks on the 21 April 2014.
Was down there last month and its still there and so should be replaced.
I used a 10.5mm static rope and its tied off to 3 bolts.
FWIW
Its quite scary cutting off the old tat whilst hanging on your new lower off under load, make double sure you cut the right rope!

Super route though

Thanks for the replies, ended up going south to avoid the showers, will be sure to head there this Autumn/Winter for the routes, only ever been there to boulder which was proper ace.
