Reporting Bad Bolts

Post by absolutsugarsmurf » Mon Jun 26, 2017 2:37 pm

I was on McCoy at Rival wall this past weekend and bolt hangers # 3 and 4 (section between the two block/mantel moves) both have a significant amount of surface rust, as well as very rusted nuts. I'd like to make a donation to whomever is most active in replacing/repairing fixed hardware, and ask that they at least take a look (I'm no expert, maybe they're fine as is).

Its been a while since I've sport climbed, so I'm out of touch with reporting bad bolts. Team Suck used to have a website (I thought), but a google search didn't turn anything up. Looking around I found BadBolts.com and the Red River Gorge Fixed Gear Initiative.

So what's current practice on reporting bad bolts and who should I donate to?

Report at Badbolts.com and then Fixed Gear Initiative is the non profit helping fund and replace gear. Feel free to contact them on Facebook or through the website if you are interested in donating time and/or money.
