BoltBuster - Glue in holes not cleaned. Wave bolts in AC100 glue tension tests.


We installed wave bolts with AC100 glue in holes that were not cleaned at all. The climbing bolt disengaged out of glue at 30.8kn and 22.88kn and 26.50kn. For reference, our other tests show these bolts get around 40kn in shear (regardless of glue) and around 40kn in tension if epoxy is used. with Bobby Hutton and edited by Nick McPherson

Breaking Gear Fear

Edutainment has been a great way to help people understand their gear, and know the true limitations of it.  Watching HOW gear fails is more important than the force itself, as almost all gear is super good enough.  It's more important to share information on how to stay safe than it is to have a paywall.  We hope our stoke is contagious.
