© Rob Kennard, Apr 2009 Great news for sport climbers! Once again the BMC is providing free bolts and accessories to bolt funds in England & Wales. Bolt funds are invited to make applications for equipment to replace old bolts and belays to help make our sport climbs safer.
We're happy to report that funding for the 2012-13 campaign is a whopping £10,000. This may sound like a lot, but the cost of high quality bolts has risen in recent years, meaning that voluntary bolt funds need all the help they can get to help make our sport climbs safer.
We can't always be there to help in the arduous task of replacing old bolts and belays, but at least we can help provide top quality equipment.
