>"Between the money from the Beacon CC 's winter bouldering league and the Indi Wall's 'DMM' key ring donations and general donation tin we have just over 700 big thanks to all"

I think those that sport climb in North Wales should be ashamed that the total collected is so low. You'll not equip many routes with 700...

Get your hands in your pockets!

Out of interest how much does it cost to bolt a route? 10 a bolt?
In reply to James Oswald:

A bolt cost 2-3, a hanger costs 2-3, a chain lower-off can cost (well) upwards of 20. A typical Kaly pitch with 15 bolts and a proper double krab lower-off has cost someone around 120.

Not so pricey for Portland, but works out 2 to 4 a staple/P-bolt including glue.

Of course, that doesn't include the cost of fuel, ropes, drill etc.

However, cheers everyone for the donations we've had through these adverts - they are very much appreciated.

At Moy it's about 4 to 5 a bolt, 20 for the lower-off, 7 for the drill bit and 8 for the glue. So about 70 per route.

Yesterday around 900 people read the 'UK Bolt Funds - Time to Donate' Article

87 of them visited - http://www.ukboltfund.org/

.. and 23 of those people clicked on a donate button.

Not bad but I think we can do better.

Maybe a lot of people clicked it to read it but don't actually do bolt clipping? (Like me) I doubt you had 900 bolt clippers reading it.

I doubt we did have 900 bolt clippers reading the article, but I think we probably had more than 23.
