This slightly overhanging water groove will have you wishing it was twice as long. Start left of the X70 graffiti and get established in the immaculate quartz groove. Break left at the top and surmount a small runout to the anchor.

4 bolts and a bomber RURP.

As of June '11 the last bolt is new. With a bit of engineering the old self-drive sleeve came out, and the hole was reused for a new stainless 12mm triplex. The rest of the bolts are 3/8" carbon and despite some rust should have a little life left in them.

Thanks sf, the bolt looks nice. We tested the others unintentionally.
