During last Thursday’s climbing event in Mġarr ix-Xini in Gozo, the MRCC also had work to do on improving the bolting in the Champagne Walls area. After having enjoyed the excellent climbing in this stunning location, Andrew, Roland, Kurt and Duncan put some extra effort into making this area safer.
Three first bolts, one resin, and two expansion bolts, were installed on Whiteness of the Whale 6b+, Big Dick 6b+and Moby Dick 6b+ respectively. A second bolt at the lower-off of Moby Dick was also installed to back it up. The team also set up a chain lower-off with a screw gate on Dity Girls 5c, as well as an intermediate bolt before the lower-off to make this route safer to lead.
