The Vermont Anchor Replacement Initiative started in 2014 to deal with the growing number of corroding bolts and anchor materials in the Bolton Valley area. A successful first year saw 146 bolts replaced and a significant grant award from the joint Access Fund-American Alpine Club anchor replacement program.


This project was supported in part by the joint Access FundAmerican Alpine Club Anchor Replacement Fund as well as the American Safe Climbing Association and private donations. All work is done on a volunteer basis.
