anchor spikes for Diamond Bay fisherman's ladders 3-Aug-2015 At 7:22:32 PM mikllaw
This descent has a horrible wobbly ladder that I'm replacing with help from UTS climbers UTSOAC).

The rest of the descent has (rusting) spike with ropes tied to them. One I replaced a few years ago was 12 mm bar, rusted down to 5 mm where it came out of the rock
I found some 19mm stainless bar and was able to drill a hole through it an pound in some 10mm stainless stock, the 'cross' should stop ropes lifting off it. A weld would be nice to keep the bar in, but for the moment the bar has been bent, and centre-punched.

I could imagine belaying on one of these. There was a welded cross anchor on the 3 sisters route I think, a monument for Big Willis
