sika is great

but if their is an outlet nearby you can plug into, id suggest drilling pockets instead

hold for hold, drill bits are cheaper than epoxy

that means 90% strength is developed within an hour

give you plenty of time to rap off and scrape all the excesss off your hands and rope gear and harness before having a go on what you created

it does tend to be slimy for the half hour after it sets though, plenty of chalk helpsthis, oh and a good dose of spray paint as well

you know the stuff really stand out, you aught to do a good job and blend it back in with color

Yup.

For the deluxe hold, drill it AND put sika on the base (try to get even surfaces in so far as possible). Try getting that one to spin Wink
