27/05/2012- TAKE CARE! Following two cases of expansion and glue-in bolts in good condition breaking, probably due to galvanic currents, you should never lower off just one bolt or nor belay yourself on just one bolt while threading a belay. When abseiling, you should never abseil off just one anchor point if the anchors are not joined together. The instances of failure have occurred next to the sea, but it has not yet been possible to establish the precise cause of the problem. Provided people pay extra attention and follow these suggestions, we can avoid bad accidents and keep climbing in relative safety in marine environments.

We have added some bolts to the lower slab below Qui (5b), Quo (5b) and Qua (5c+) - previously there was only 1 peg - so now there are 5 slabby 5?s at this crag, plus 3 6a?s, 3 6a+?s, 3 6b?s, and 4 6b+?s for those who prefer routes below 6c. There are also very good routes in the 6c-7c range. As well, we have added a chain and changed a hanger at the stance of Testa di Legno (6a). Testa di Legno was one of the routes mentioned in Pietra di Luna 2002 as being at risk of stonefall, plus the two routes to the right, Burattino senza Fili (6b+) and Campo dei Miracoli (7a). It?s true that goats above crag sometimes dislodge stones. There doesn?t seem to have been any repetition of the 1997 landslide mentioned in Pietra di Luna, and the bolts damaged then have been replaced, although during very heavy winter thunderstorms some big blocks do come down below the crag, as they do on the road below.
