Questionable nut on Josie Get Your Gun - SilvermineMainCrag

Postby stb » Sat Apr 30, 2005 9:49 am

While climbing at Silvermine main crag this weekend, and noticed that the nut on the 4th bolt of Josie Get Your Gun is very rusted (might only be surface rust). It's not really in a desperate possition or anything like that, but I mention it in the interest of safety. Could the next person going there please change the nut? The rest of the bolt looks ok from the outside (the bit that I could see). Also, some of the hangers on the route are quite loose. I have finger-tightened a few, but please tighten these as well, while you're at it. (I would do it, but I don't know when I'll have the opportunity to go there again). Thanks! (ted@indutech.co.za)

Thanks for the info. Whoever tightens the bolt, just don't overtighten. Consider the long term impact re SCC.
