Update: ARF at Lower Silvermine


So far there are only 6 volunteers including Cormac, Malcolm and myself  (Andy) :(

Please can all you people help make this day a success my coming along to help.  There is no need to be a hot shot bolter, we need belayers and people to remove the old bolts. This is a beginners crag so lets see all you beginners helping out with ARF. If you can help please contact Cormac at cormactoozeATgmailDOTcom

Hi all

Andy Davies has informed us that the 610 shiny new glue-in bolts have arrived for ARF phase II.   Many thanks again to all who have donated towards purchasing these bolts.  We want to get ARF phase II off to a good start so Malcolm Gowans and myself are organising an ARF meet at Lower Silvermine Crag. Please help by giving back to the climbing community by contributing with your time- no prior experience required, just enthusiasm!

When & Where: Lower Silvermine parking lot on the Saturday 7th July 9h00 (if the weather is bad, then Sunday 8th July)

Lifts may be organised if required! Pretty girls are very welcome – in fact Malcolm has promised to bolt without a shirt on.

Please let us know if you can attend so we can plan drills, bolts etc. We are especially looking for people with drills and bolting / chopping experience. You can email me: cormactooze at gmail dot com

    So not this weekend then. Next weekend. Until Monday, then it will be next weekend. I need to check my calendar more closely but I am in principle keen on joining.

    I’ll be there. I’m trying to recruit some more people as well. I’ve sent you an email confirming that I’m coming.

    ARF was a great success, thanks to all whom attended, well done!

    4 and a bit routes were re-bolted, from 12:00 till just before closing at 18:00

    I will write a short story for climbZA when I get a gap.

    Cormac, Malcolm and Andy
