How to Bolt a Sport Climb - Ground Up


Bobby Hutton shows us how he bolts a new sport route in an area he has been developing for the last 5 years. Learn how he considers placement, fall distances, and installation techniques. Please don't bolt unnecessarily and if you do, please install things that last longer than you (stainless or titanium).

This place Bobby established is great to go from the gym to outdoor climbing without the crowds.

Breaking Gear Fear

Edutainment has been a great way to help people understand their gear, and know the true limitations of it.  Watching HOW gear fails is more important than the force itself, as almost all gear is super good enough.  It's more important to share information on how to stay safe than it is to have a paywall.  We hope our stoke is contagious.
