      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!

Bolt Replacement possibility

Recommended Posts

Thanks for the thoughts folks. I didnt consider the toprope scenario I guess and I like the history argument. The route shall stay as is.

how about the last pitch of "tale of two %#)@#&". Did it a few years back and it was some weird 5.9 moves protected by some crappy 1/4" bolts.

I know it goes without saying....

 

But Major PROPS to people who use their own time and money to replace bolts and make climbing safer for everyone.

My feeling and the feeling of the asca is a hole for a hole. nothing new on Karate but worthless belays and old 1/4 inchers for sure and even many old 3/8 with bad hangers need to be upgraded. The old stuf served its purpose at the time but everything wears out eventually. Too bad old climbers can't be rebolted...instead of just rebolting...or maybe they can? I have a total of 17 screws in me with some very expensive stainless and titanium stuff too. Rest days are great...sorry for all the blab.

My vote would be leave Karate as is, its easy to protect the downclimb into the belay with nuts. We don't need to sanitize everything.

 

If you want to replace some bolts, Santiam Hwy Ledges could sure use a facelift, it would be a great route!
