Carrot bolts with knotted sling? Please help 4-Jan-2012 At 10:27:35 AM Mike Bee
I'm surprised that the leader didn't have better options available to him.
I assume he's climbed in the Bluies before. If so, I would have thought that throwing a handful of bolt plates in was standard practice.

However, maybe he thought "oh, I'm off to Piddo, which is mainly a trad crag" and hence left them behind. In that case, I would have thought he would have had a set of nuts with him (for the trad climbing), which would have been a better option than slings.

Either way, noone died, the belayer did something he thought was right, while the leader did something that satisfied them at some level (increased risk resulting in higher rewards?).
