Have you enjoyed a summer of sport climbing in the UK this year? Did you tick your hardest redpoint? Run laps on that classic warm-up route? Get some fitness before a trip to sunnier climes and climbs?
Whatever you've done on the bolts this year, whether it was an 8c or a 5c, why not send some cash to the bolt funds to help keep those bolts safe, and your crags well equipped.
Chris Parkin of the North Wales Bolt Fund, got in touch to fill us in on how donations are going down in that neck of the woods:
"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.
The Bolt fund is actively supporting re-equipping on the coastal limestone and slate quarries of Mid and North Wales as well as helping new route development with quality materials at low cost.
Volunteers have also completed over half of the 'Lower-off' inspections at Upper Pen Trwyn on behalf of the
BMC . This work is essential for the continued access to routes above the road on the Great Orme."
