Smaller maillons

Post by Justin » Wed Jun 19, 2013 1:10 pm

Found this maillon on the 3rd bolt of Simply Irresistible at Waterworld...
The maillon is rated for 250 Kg's and has a CE stamp.

To the person who lowered off using this maillon... I recommend using a bigger/stronger one in future. Just because your rope is thin, doesn't mean your maillon should be thinner too!

Also, does anyone have the hanger and nut from the first bolt of the route?
