The Municipal Rebolting Project is Now Underway
The rebolting project we wrote about a few months ago started in Kalymnos earlier this week. The project was delayed for a few months as the economy of Greece went downhill over the summer, but the gear finally arrived in mid-November and rebolting work is now underway. The first sector to be rebolted was Great Canyon, so climbers can now climb routes #1-#12 (which were “blacklisted” in the new guidebook, page 139, until further notice).
As a reminder, these are the specifications of the rebolting project:
• 2400 stainless-steel glue-in bolts (316L, 12mm) are to be used for rebolting existing routes
• 500 V-type anchors with two opposed carabiners are to replace older lower-offs
• 580 carabiners are to be placed on anchors without carabiners or used to replace worn carabiners
• 100 new routes are to be equipped using stainless-steel bolts (316L, 12mm) and V-type anchors with two opposed carabiners
• Some roadside crag markers/signposts will be added
We will keep updating here on the rebolting progress, so make sure to check back or email us if you have any questions.
