Bolts Installed or Replaced
WHAT WE DO
The Bolt Fund was relaunched in 2007 to help fund and manage the replacement and development of protection bolts and lower-offs throughout Cumbria and surrounding areas. Many of the bolts in Cumbrian crags were placed in the 80's and 90's and are now in a dangerous state and in need of replacement. Some have been replaced already however there are many still awaiting our attention.
The bolt fund is funded entirely by donations from the public and partner organisations like the BMC, this is why we need your support to continue our work, and keep your favourite crags safe.
