Info for Bolters


Before we can go bolt a crag we must have permission.

Crags where we can bolt as of 2013

  Mill Side

  St Bees Head 

  Humphry Head 

  Scout Scar


There is now 2 sets of bolting equipment for the Cumbria Bolt Fund, Due to other bolt funds having drills and other equipment go missing the equipment will be held with two people, one in the north Lakes and with Dan Robinson in the South Lakes.

You will be given the kit when you ask for it and expected to bring it back when you have finished and not just hand to to another bolter. Please make a request to the number of bolts you will require for each route. A couple of spares will be given with a couple of longer bolts for placements in poor rock.


After completion of a route you will be expected to let the chair know what route has been bolted and how many bolts have been placed. All equipment to then return to the central place with a resin sample named up for that route.


You will asked to note which route on which crag you are intending to bolt, there will be no bolting of routes that are not approved of nor extra bolting of “classic scare route’s”
