shouldn't you drill out a groove and place these flush?

Matthew.....I have the same question/concern as Steve. Shouldn't there be a groove created for the bolt to sit in so the placement sits flush with the rock surface?

I agree with both of you. These two were not properly installed...but they're still the "good news" of the anchor situation at Fire Crags.

I haven't been out to the crag in more than a year but have been told that these were actually chopped and replaced (not sure with what).

The good news at Fire Crag is the pair of Petzl Bat'Inox capsule-style, glue-in bolts on the very top of the crag. These bolts, if properly placed, are rated to 50kN each. With a 40-foot piece of static cord, these can be used to back-up any top-anchor at the crag.
