Thanks to the support of “Join the Rebolt!” in 2018, WARP was able to raise over $8,000 through the community, businesses and organizations. This generosity enabled WARP to award 10 Hardware Replacement Grants to 8 volunteers who used materials we supplied to replace 309 bolts and 26 anchors on 43 routes with all stainless steel hardware at 9 different crags. Show your support for replacement work in 2019 and check out our NEW items available at http://bit.ly/JoinTheRebolt_2019 The best part is that you don’t have to wait long because orders are typically shipped in 3 days!
Join the Rebolt! 2019 Sponsors
Honorary and Continuing Sponsors:
But their support can only get us so far. We need your help!
Join the Rebolt! comes at a critical time for climbers: the hardware put in by previous generations is at the end of its lifespan and many placements have become dangerous.
With the continuing support of hardware from our honorary sponsors, Petzl and Fixe Hardware, replacing a minimalist anchor consisting of 2 stainless steel bolts, 2 stainless steel hangers, 2 rated stainless steel quick links and 2 stainless steel rap rings costs WARP over $30.00. To replace a preferred style anchor with the addition of stainless steel chain pushes the cost to over $52.00! This means that for WARP to supply a rebolter with the hardware to re-equip the average route consisting of 10 bolts and a two-bolt anchor, our cost will be between $90.00 and $110.00. A wall with 20 routes is around $2,000.00. A whole crag…you can imagine gets pretty costly!
Your $25 donation (which gets you a t-shirt, sweatshirt or tank) along with the Join the Rebolt! sponsors’ support makes it possible to continue supplying new stainless steel hardware for re-equipping routes around Washington state at crags from the Olympic Peninsula’s sandstone to Index’s granite epics. Without your support, we can only hope the next anchor we hang or rappel from will hold. Fellow climbers, this is our responsibility, let’s make it happen together: Join the Rebolt!
Thank you again for your support of this initiative. We look forward to making Washington a safer place to climb—together!
