The North Wales Bolt Fund
The fund relies on donations from the climbing community and companies associated with climbing. Bolts cost money and stainless ones even more! Drills, resin and static ropes all eat away at the donations so it needs constantly topping up. Donations can be made by Credit Card, Debit Card or Paypal by clicking on the 'Donate' link above. Donations can also be sent to: NWBF, Llysfaen, Lon Brynteg, Glyn Garth, Menai Brridge, LL59 5NU, or dropped off at the following climbing shops:
- V12 - Llanberis,
- Joe Browns - Llanberis & Capel Curig,
- Great Arete - Bangor,
- The Beacon Climbing Wall,
- The Indi Climbing Wall.
Buying the guide makes a donation directly to the bolt fund; the smartphone topo app version of the guide will also put all profits straight back into the bolt fund.
Thank you for supporting climbing in North Wales! NWBF is actively involved in the re-equipping of bolts on these crags as it is on other bolted areas in North Wales including the Clwyd Area and the Llanberis Slate Quarries. Volunteers who value the superb climbing available in these areas and the need for safe bolts carry out all installations but would rather be climbing, so help out if you can. If you spot a poor bolt (or other fixed equipment) let the NWBF know via firstname.lastname@example.org or the discussion forums on North wales bolt fund wikiYou can donate to the bolt fund here
