The left-hand for the two P hangers above the Crabwalk at the abseil point in the Upper Series is slightly loose and needs checking. It may have been loosened by people attempting to remove the in situ Maillon Rapides. These Maillons are there to act as sacrificial wear points protecting the P hangers. They are locked with Locktight to prevent removal. Once worn the only way to remove them is with bolt croppers.

Don't hold your breath though. The production of this guide will require a lot of effort and will take a considerable amount of time.
