Pitch #4

Bruce following the 4th pitch of Safe Sex, sustained 8+ slab with huge runouts, as you can see. I took a massive 50 foot whipper on this pitch when I got off route a bit and slipped. Freaked me out and my but is sore as hell, but no major injuries.

Wow...

Who put in the bolts and did they do it on lead?

Re: Wow...

Pretty sure they were put in on rappel. They are all 3/8" modern 5 piece bolts. I spoke to the first ascentionist and told him I though these pitches need more protection.

Thanks for the vote.

Re: Wow...

If those bolts were truly put in on rappel, that is sick and wrong. Runouts due to a ground-up FA is understandable, but rappel and drill? Sheesh...
