Petzl self-drive bolt with Leeper hanger - found and replaced on pitch 3.  Note that the bolt did not shear off, this was its full length.  Thanks to the ASCA for the replacement hardware.

These are good bolts. They have more than enough thread in the sleeve (not shown) to hold a huge fall. The negative is that if you don't get them tight they don't have to loosen up much to fall out. I never had one fall out. We placed a lot of these in the 80's. Just try getting the sleeve out. Sep 26, 2012

Greg Barnes and I replaced three or four of these on a route in Red Rocks a few years back. Being that they are 3/8" and have "Petzl" stamped on the head, at a glance they look like good bolts... Yikes! Sep 26, 2012
