How to Bolt a Sport Climb Top Down - Rap Bolting


Wow, we finally did a description with helpful links! Here is one way to install a new route starting at the top with a fixed line called “Rap Bolting”. Some say if you can’t lead it don’t bolt it, others say the bolting job will be higher quality if you aren’t terrified the whole time. What do you think?


While top rope solo climbing, identify where the ideal bolt placement should be, drill your hole, brush and blow it clean and test fit the glue in bolt (if that is the type you are using). Continue up until you get to the anchor and drill that with the next pitch and/or rappelling options in mind. Then crack your glue open and start gluing. Have gloves and paper towels and try not to get it everywhere. A plastic bag for drips and trash really helps. You glue top down with pre-drilled holes so you aren’t rushed on by the adhesive working time. All these details can be found on the #BoltingBible (link below).

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.
