The Bolt Patrol was assembled on Dec 2005 by Jiame Navarrete and Andy Baldassar with the idea of combining the power of the climbing community and the expertise of local guides to replace old bolts and hardware in El Potrero.
- Find and replace unsafe bolts at El Potrero.
- Compile a current list of routes in need of repair and those we have repaired
Acomplishments:In 2005/06 we compiled a list of 16 routes in need of repair and replaced bolts on 10 routes. We received $40 in cash donations, 25 Fixie hangers, 10 bolts and a rope. Thank you to all who donated their time and resources. Next year we hope to post the names of all donors.
You can help by adding to our list of routes in need of evaluation or repair. After a day of climbing drop by the Posada office and tell us about any sketchy bolts.
- Donate money or hardware to the Patrol.
One stainless steel bolt and hanger costs about $3USD
One stainless steel rap anchor (bolts, hangers, chains) costs about $15USD.
Donate now online via our Paypal account.
Or, even better, bring your gift to us in person! Stop by the Posada office and make your donation.
