      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

With the help of Ryan Lawson, Thomas Emde, Mike Stoger and I, I think we replaced over 120 different bolts at Smith Rock over the past week. To name a few, Caffine Free, A Phone Call From Satan, Ship Wreck, everything over on the Pheonix Wall, Five Easy Peices, Lichen It, Sunshine Dihederal where all worked on or fully replaced. Our goal was to hit the high use areas where theres lots of wear and tear. Thanks everyone for all your help and donations to ASCA(safeclimbing.org)

Much thanks to Kevin & Ben for the bolting know-how.

And much thanks to Tony, the Access Fund & ASCA for the hardware.

 

Shoot me a PM when you guys want to get back out there and clean up some of the other manky bolts - I'm up for helping out again.

i'm curious, what was wrong w/ the bolts on gandalf's grip? the anchor certainly was old, but the two bolts on the traverse seemed totally fine - how did you go about determining the need to replace them?

Ivan. We replaced the anchor only.

reckon it'll be nice to have something that looks new, but was the old one bad? i kinda liked how it looked/felt like a damn ship anchor!
