MCC updates lower offs at Wied Babu and Victoria Lines

MCC Secretary Kurt Vella Haber has been busy recently installing new lower offs on some of the routes at Wied Babu as part of the club’s efforts to facilitate the sport in Malta. This work was possible due to the kind donation earlier this year of a Hilti drill by Panta Lesco www.pantalesco.com and bolts by Charles Ellul of Wallrats www.wallrats.net and by Kurt himself.

The routes affected are:

Bentornati a Malta
Overhanging Crack
and on Bobo’s Block – The Twilight Zone
– John Graham

He also installed new lower offs in the Wied Anglu area of Victoria Lines:

Anglu crack Area -Idiots Arete
-Anglu Crack
-Idiots Wall

Please remember that since bolts and anchors are constantly exposed to weathering & metal fatigue we always recommend that you check all in situ protection and lower offs such as these to assess their quality before using them.
