R3 bolts are missing a nut, should be an easy job of put the chain/hanger back on, a new nut and all good, may want to check the bolt too through because it had movement. We rigged off the other bolt which appeared solid and back up sling to tree behind for all except LMAR. Otherwise all good fun and smooth sailing!
Went down with a party of 3. Felt like we were fast but still took 2.5h to descent.
Anchors and webbing in good condition.
Approach route after crossing the river, up the spur is good going, if you find you’re bush bashing too much you may be too far West.
