Hey Vermont climbers! It’s hard to think about rock climbing with this amazing winter, but we’re keeping one eye on the approaching Spring season and the on-going hardware replacement efforts. We’ve now received delivery of the bulk lot of hardware we acquired with the help of the joint American Alpine Club – Access Fund Anchor Replacement Grant and your generous contributions! We received 125 more bolts, 10 pairs of lower-off carabiners, 15 pairs of rap rings, 10 pairs of pig-tail lower-offs, 30 pairs of safety shackles and 3 meters of chain! Be on the lookout for new hardware coming to our local cliffs this coming season and stay up to date on replacememt efforts by visiting http://vari.gregkuchyt.net. Thanks to Jim Titt at Bolt Products for the discount on the hardware!
