Flash Clinic: Re-bolting with the Washington Climbers Coalition

Flash clinics are 3-4 hour workshops focusing on one climbing topic or skill.

The Washington Climbers Coalition is offering a BIPOC Ground School in collaboration with Climbers of Color: a two-part  introductory course offered to individuals interested in replacing aging fixed hardware (bolts and hangars on sport routes) on outdoor sport climbs. These skills can also be used to bolt new routes; for a holistic look at route development, take our Crag Development and Guidebooks course in the same morning.

Classes are generally 3 hours in length. However, each class is unique so the actual duration will depend on the amount of discussion during the presentation period and the amount of time required for students to gain proficiency with the bolt removal process and replacement skills.

Students who successfully complete this class with enough experience can apply for a Hardware Replacement Grant through the Washington Anchor Replacement Project.
