    Webbing looked good, a few of the rapides on the bottom few abseils are looking a bit manky and rusty.

      Thanks for saying – I imagine that you updated the ‘manky’ maillons for some new ones. If not perhaps spare a thought in future towards taking spare maillons and webbing to upgrade worn parts – This is a collective responsibility that we all share.

    On behalf of Pete Smith:

    December 2014;

    “Do take some webbing to replace the one worn webbing who ever visits next please. Bolts in place are 12mm x 100mm x 2 at each anchor. Anyone that descends these canyons should inspect all webbing before use and replace it if needed. Take spare (new) rated webbing with you.”
