07-49A

Mon 28 Jul 2008

Added a spit to the first traverse and attempted to rig the second but the Makita drill died after 1.5 holes on the first battery and 0.1 holes on the second battery, so not enough bolting power or rope to check out more distant leads so we went to 07-49A. Did a dodgy rig on 2 naturals and down a chossy slope. Pitch on L side and 2m drop (with 2 spits, handbolted) to a pitch further on and QM? to pitch behind. Surveyed and out. No rope left to continue but worth returning to. T/U 8hrs
