    In Boya Quarry in the West Bay, two sets of anchors could do with an upgrade from just chains to fixed hangers or ring bolts (anything but Bunnings chains);

    The West Bay main wall, anchors for Cool Under Fire (17) and Prosecutor and Executioner (22).
    The Chick Magnet Buttress, the one set of anchors for all climbs there.

    Kangaroo rock – Cape le grande
    Back in Jan 2015 a few of the shiny new(ish) SS nuts holding the hanger were loose or only finger tight on Music wall. I don’t know what has loosened them (poor rock? corrosion? glue not set?). We didn’t have a spanner on hand so just finger tightened them 🙂 Anyone heading down (who knows what they are doing) might want to consider checking them out, taking a spanner and maybe a little dab of loctite to hold them in place? I’m not sure what sort of bolts they are (glue-in or expansion?), overtightening might crack the glue in the hole???

    The first bolt on Practical Visionaries (20) on Fox Wall at Oakley Falls is very loose.
