Climb the face directly under the two bolts. Beware many hold rip. Some of the key holds are nubbins.


Tidel Pool Area (north of Jerusalem and the other bouldering).

next time you place bolts in such conditions i highly suggest you use titanium gluein bolts. ushba sells them. even stainless bolts corrode rapidly in such an environment. those will probably become timebomb in no time if they are exposed to as much water as it sounds.

Yea you're probably right. I considerd using glueins. But i already had the RAWLs. When i called Fixe Hardware to ask about bolting in sea cliffs he said that only in very corosive rock types( such as limestone) are glueins nessicary. Places like Thailand... I hoped I placed a bolt that would last at least 10 years but I have no idea. Use at you own risk...

Both mechanical and glue-in steel bolts have broken in limestone (Thailand), basalt (Hawaii), and sandstone (Taiwan). The only solution is titanium, which will last at least 50 years according to UIAA.
