Bolt replacement is a top priority of the BCC. As our climbing anchors age, many require replacement to remain safe, which is both time-consuming and costly.
The first step is to identify the anchors that need replacement – and we need your help in that endeavor (see reporting form below).
The next step is to find the right people to replace the bolts, and then provide them with the hardware and tools needed to get the job done.
We also have organized massive re-bolting single day efforts at places like the Anarchy Wall in Clear Creek (90+ bolts) and the Mickey Mouse Wall in Eldo (120+ bolts). Check out this video of the Anarchy Wall day and this Daily Camera article about the Mickey Mouse Wall day to get an idea of the work we’ve done.
To date our two-year effort has replaced over 350 bolts on routes up and down the Front Range. Check out a long list of them here.
Well beyond our efforts, the Flatirons Climbing Council (FCC), Action Committee for Eldorado (ACE), and American Safe Climbing Association (ASCA) have also played a huge part in bolt replacement locally.
If you have bolting experience and would like to help, we have hardware to supply you! Please contact us about your interests and availability.
