Mystery ringbolts at The Fortress.

Wendy spotted a few new ringbolted sport routes at The Fortress. She decribes...

"I just saw them on the way into Passport in Feb. They look very new. Ring bolts. You walk under them after you leave the main walking track to get around to Passport, but not as far around as the main climbing on the front of the cliff"

Nick Hanc--k has done one new route up there which is decribed in the latest Rock magazine. It is bolted with BR's not rings as far as the route decription describes. Does anyone know anything about these new routes? Does anyone have Nick Hanc--ks email adress?

The ringbolts are not Nick Hanc--k's. He has only done one new route up there - with expansion bolts and Lucky brand hangers.

No idea. He said he stopped bolting it midway - and he planned ot go back at some stage and finish the job.

Finally spoke to Cate about the bolts, and she thinks there may be only one climb worth of them there - my memory may be getting carried away with me and there is only Nick Hanc--k's route?
