I suppose you could bolt a boulder problem, but surely by definition a bolder problem is one that's not bolted?

Well this particular route you can start with your feet on the ground, and finish with your feet about a metre above the ground. It's a horizontal roof.

I hope Bangor is prepared for the pressure on infrastructure and services when the hordes of international climbers arrive.

Infrastructure? = Some bolts

Services? = Bring Your Own

Has there been a mass influx of poms walking home pissed from the local pubs ?

Maybe, but they'd be more likely to get a Take-Away Chinese meal, with chips!

I can't find it on the interweb, do I have to go to a store and look at it?

Do you mean this route...



So its name is Lucky's Roof ?

Maybe we're seeing a convergence that is producing a melding of two previously separate strains to produce a new form -- Sport Bouldering?

Interesting story on p. 12 of issue 199 (online now) about someone decking while clipping bolt #2 on a route as well - armful of slack and popped a foot at the wrong moment. I know mikl has warned of that many times, and I try to be paranoid in my bolting so that the risk is minimal. Still get it wrong sometimes though.

Una iluminación muy interesante..!

I just called it Monkey Bars in the guide bcos I didn't have a name for it and since I had a photo for it from Dave Burgess I thought it needed a name. Happy to change its name to "Lucky's Roof".

People have got about 5 days to lock it in before I upload the final v1.0 cut to the printers. (It's a race whether the iphone app or the printed guide makes it out first.....)

Seeig that it doesn't really achieve a "v" grade, it probably needed the bolts so as
to be graded in some way.
