Fixed Gear on the Slate – Report

In an effort to highlight some of the work of the North Wales Bolt Fund in the Slate Quarries. We are going to list the checks we have carried out and the actions taken. If there is nothing mentioned in the actions column then feel free to climb the climbs and check the bolts for side to side movement and in/out movement. You can send your reports to me via the email address on the contact page.
