ARI Upgraded Route Master list


Since 2003, more than 1,000 bolts have been replaced on almost 600 high-trafficked routes at major crags across the country. The ARI work was performed by some of the climbing community's most experienced equippers.

On September 27–29, Climbing, along with the Access Fund, New River Alliance of Climbers, and the American Safe Climbing Association, will host a training camp designed to teach you how to re-equip sketchy hardware at your home crag. Bonus: You'll take home new gear for upgrading old bolts! Learn more and sign up here; don't delay—space is limited!

The ARI is made possible by generous support from The North Face, Petzl, and BlueWater Ropes. Contact Sean Bonser at for more information.
