Something I've been wondering about that plays in to Gregger Man's photo... the bolt is the piece with the highest replacement cost. So are there opportunities for cathodic protection? Simple example, use the hangar as the sacrificial anode. This concentrates any corrosion on the hangar, which is trivially replaced.



This isn't a good idea. Generally, having a sacrificial anode will induce localized pitting on the cathode (i.e. the stainless bolt) with will then lead to localized corrosion and weakening of the bolt much more quickly then just using like metals.

Heck, if Gregger Man ever wants to share with me some of his bolt removal wisdom, I will gladly buy him a case of beer or something... The work and knowledge is appreciated.


Send me the dates/times you are available. I've got many more anchors that look like Werk Supp did on my radar. I'll talk tools all day if you like.

I apologize for my original post. What I said was a total jerk move. Im sorry to those of you i offended, I am underqualified to judge the placement of a bolt and was totally off base. Sorry about that guys, but thanks for setting me straight. I learned more through this. Once again, I apologize for my statement. Matt.H Haron

No worries, Matty.
This post was quite productive, actually. Anything that gets more climbers interested in route maintenance is fine by me. If you see other bolts that you think are ticking time bombs, photograph them and post 'em up.

I clipped this on Ottos Route this morning. I think it's the same bolter.

I disagree. He was overwhelmingly wrong so had no choice but to admit it.

A strong character asks questions about things they don't know rather than flying off the handle.

Nah, I think he was strong to apologize.

Well done Matt.
