Route #1 at Farside – Rebolted

In conjunction with the Montagu Bolting Fund:  Route #1 was re-bolted by Micky Wiswedel (who paid for all the bolts) and Justin Lawson.

We still need to go and remove the old bolts and replace one of the top anchors (which is spinning – see video below).

Montagu Bolting Fund:

Anyone who wants to support the Montagu Bolting Fund can deposit donations into the account below – I’ve opened this savings account specifically for bolting in and around Montagu.  I will keep a spreadsheet record of what was received by whom as well as outgoing expenditures.
Please email me the deposit slip & you are also welcome to include suggestions of whether you would like the funds to go to re-bolting or new routes.
Climb ZA’s emphasis right now is to bolt “lower grade” routes at easily accessible crags as this grows the sport.

    Did you bolt the contrived arete start or the super fun fisting crack?

    nope just rebolted route #1, it had the worst looking bolts of the lot. The anchors were fine in comparison. The other routes bolts look ok.
