The Peak district has been crying out for a bolt fund for a long time now.
A lot of really good routes have and continue to become dangerous propositions due to the state of the often ancient insitu gear. Hopefully the existence and promotion of an active bolt fund and re-bolting project should help to rectify this situation. In so doing not only will we maintain the popular routes we've all enjoyed, but help to re-vitalise routes and crags of undeniable quality which have slipped into disuse due to the state of the gear.
The success of this venture depends entirely on the generosity in time and money of the climbing community. As is so often the way, many of those with one to give are sorely short of the other. Hopefully the Peak Bolt Fund can join the dots by giving the time rich but money poor the tools, equipment and technical support needed to carry out some necessary work.
If you have or do enjoy sport climbing in the Peak please join the effort to keep the crags in good order, by either donating online via the Paypal button at the peak bolt fund website.
