Hi Everyone,

This is (yet another) David Jones. I'm a co-director of SAS and we've recently completed an initial effort to re-bolt a selection of climbs around Squamish. A report on this work can be found on our website:

http://squamishaccess.ca/?p=687

The reaction from the community has been overwhelming positive and we are moving on to Phase 2 on the initiative. Phase 2 will continue by re-bolting climbs in Chek, Rouge Gallery, Murrin, Grand Wall, and the North Wall. In this follow up effort we will likely include replacement of nearly all suspect fixed draws at Chek.

If you have any positive or negative comments or if you have any questions/ concerns please contact me djones <at> squamishaccess.ca or make a comment on our website. Suggestions for other climbs to be considered for re-bolting can be made in a similar manner or here:

http://squamishaccess.ca/?page_id=13

If this sounds like a good idea, considering joining SAS to support these and other efforts we are working on for all climbers. And if you’d like to hear more about this and other SAS initiatives in more detail, come to our AGM in early October (date TBA).

Cheers,

David Jones
SAS co-director

Hi Everyone,

A mid-winter update of Phase 2 of SAS's re-bolting initiative can be found here:

http://squamishaccess.ca/?m=201012

which included re-bolting of climbs at Pet Wall and the Shaman in Murrin, North Wall of the Grand and Chek. We have also installed Permadraws on the Circus in Chek with stainless steel biners.

Phase 3 will be completed in early spring with more re-bolting and further replacement of fixed draws on select climbs in Chek with Permadraws.

As before, if you have any positive or negative comments or if you have any questions/ concerns please contact me djones <at> squamishaccess.ca or make a comment on our website. Suggestions for other climbs to be considered for re-bolting can be made in a similar manner.

A number of people of asked how they can help. The single biggest helpful action would be to join SAS. Details can be found on our website.

In the meantime enjoy the ice and snow!

David J. Jones

SAS co-director

Hey David!

WOW! That's great news!! That is so awesome you all are doing this and thanks for posting. THANKS to all those people who contributed their efforts!

I ran into Al and Travis this weekend! Travis was free soloing that (now) 5.10c on Burger and Fries and then a 5.11.

Just got back from Squamish today (I LOVE Squamish so much!) and had incredibly beautiful weather.

Oh my God! You Canucks can show us Gringos a thing or two about how to manage things. ...and this is coming from a Blue-blooded Texan.

Good luck, be safe and thank you.
