Clipped bolt plate came off carrot bolt 14-Nov-2016 At 3:55:14 PM technogeekery
Saw this happen this weekend at Tarana (Shark Fin Special first bolt). My partner clipped the first carrot, moved up, and as he pulled up slack to clip the second carrot, his first draw and hanger just lifted off the bolt and slid down to the somewhat bemused belayer. I saw it happen, the rope just gently lifted the draw vertically.

He was using my draws, which have fat old biners specifically for using with carrots. Hanger was a PFH 45 degree. Bolt head didn't look small and wasn't protruding unusually. Partner re-clipped the hanger on rap and was unable to flick it off by hand.

Just lucky, I guess... No real shock, we know carrots can unclip - just a nice reminder to self that bolts do come unclipped.
