  • Tom Higgins Shares His Recollections Of A Classic

    We selected the streak we did climb because a side view suggested it might not be as steep at the top as other lines we examined, but the view from underneath still shocked us so much we just stopped looking and thinking about what was up there.

The Future of Fixed Anchors


On April 1st and 2nd the Access Fund and Petzl teamed up to conduct the Future of Fixed Anchors II conference to Las Vegas.

The conference brought together a broad cross-section of climbing advocates, outdoor industry professionals, and climbers who are actively developing climbs and maintaining anchors at America’s crags. The conference addressed the concern of aging climbing bolts and outlined a vision for the future of sustainable fixed anchor maintenance and replacement in the United States. The conference included a combination of formal presentations, panel discussions, hands-on demonstrations and social gatherings.

For all the gory details, INCLUDING video footage of our own Bruce Hildenbrand demoing bolt removal, check out the Access Fund Web site.
