>"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?
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.
(PS all prices approximate!)
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.
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.
