I'll pay for the bolts and hangers if you put a few more on the 1st and 3rd pitches of White Lightening.

Just replacing, not adding.

If I can get up from Vancouver, any excuse to get on the rock is a good one. I'm also looking at retro scrubbing some routes starting early spring just for the hell of it.

You don't need to talk to anyone, or ask for permission as long as you are only replacing old unsafe bolts.
Please know what you are doing, if you don't have any experience removing and replacing bolts then consult one of the active new route developers.

The community consensus supports upgrading existing belay anchors, but not the addition of bolt anchors.

Thank you for contributing your time and money, I am sure your effort will not go uncriticized. :wink: Develope a thick skin, the majority of our community appreciates individual efforts.

Keep us posted and updated.

Cheers
Rolf

Great idea!! Replace bolts on archives too please, rusty they are!

Speaking of removing bolts maybe someone here could pipe up as to what they find
to be the easiest way to remove a bolt? I know that replacing a 1/4 with a 3/8 is a lot easier
since you can possibly re-drill the same hole a bit bigger, is it possible to replace a 3/8 bolt using the same hole if done properly?! I am guessing no but i have no experience removing bolts. It Would be interesting to hear what others do and as well to have some
dialogue about removing bolts as it seems in Squamish they are often chopped or sunk instead
of properly removed and patched.
