When we did Lava Falls and Shake and Bake we pulled then drilled all the holes.  Then had one person with glue and one person with the bolt.  The actual bolting went fast.

I'm happy to see that there is some interest in doing this.

 I'm unsure as to whether gluein hardware or traditional would be better. It takes a much more crafty approach to do glueins well and I'm not sure if there's a need. It's more of an effort vs finished product. And you can make a mess real quick. But they are so pretty and inspiring when done well. With two or three people working we could possibly do one route a day. And if it's cold enough for the glue to stay viscous the bolts could all be glued in one rappel with two people working simultaneously, quick and clean.

I think these routes have the most need:
Foreplay
POD
Hawaiian Noises
Hard Variation
Future Shock
Ranger Bolts
Cataract Corner?

I'd be interested in starting a fundraiser at Pacific Edge. Maybe Tom would be psyched to get some of his old metal replaced.

Anyhow if i make it to Mud Festival more can be discussed.

 BTW. I pulled out one of the shirts Noal made a couple years back for MOM. They are the coolest ever!

 He wouldn't be the first ranger to bolt. Is out of state of mind a place?  Smiley

Re bolting Bear Gulch is over due. Monolith has been vacant on occasion recently while other areas are being climbed. The question has been asked, where are the hard pulling sport climbers?

 Modernization of all the bolts on the Monolith is a great idea especially since there is the means now to pull wedge bolts and re-use holes.  I think so many obscure routes were rebolted because they had drivyn bolts that were easy to pull with a tuning fork re-use the hole and keep the bolt in the same location .

This would be a great project to do in the summer when there are less folks around.  I would definitely come help if needed.  I can hang on a rope and drill.  Would love to learn about glue ins.
