RP rivet hangers
12:12:59 PM
I just completed my first El Cap route in Yosemite. It went great, except I left 3 RP rivet hangers at an anchor. . . My partner was less than pleased. He informs me they are virtually impossible to find in the US, are possibly no longer made and all other brands cannot compare. I am trying to track down some replacements. I would like to purchase at least 10. The best lead I've found is an old discussion on this forum from 2004. "Trent" seems to have the info I'm looking for but I don't see an email address to contact him directly. Does anyone know who / where I can find info on purchasing these RP rivet hangers? Thanks in advance for any help.

Yes, these are impossible to come-by in America, thats because you guys don't have carrot bolts, an
speciality. Most gear stores in Australia have them... for instnace these SRT hangers are just as good.

...Mike, maybe add Carrot Bolt and Keyhole Hanger to your climbing dictionary....

The store in the above link also sells RP hangers (but is out of stock). If you email the store, they may be able to help out either with sales or contact details for their supplier.

(Personally I find bolt plates all much the same, unless you're trying to frig around getting them on an oversized bolt, in which case the different keyhole shapes can make a small difference...or maybe it just seems that way when you're panicked...).
