FOP Awarded Access Fund Rebolting Grant
posted: January 02, 2017
This is a great way to start the New Year: For the second year in a row, Friends of Pinnacles has been awarded a rebolting grant from the Access Fund. This year we received $444, which will keep us in bolts, hangers and drill bits for a while. Not to mention allowing us to purchase some of the newer technologies for more effective bolt removal.
This is the second year that the Access Fund has conducted the program, which includes dividing $10,000 between qualified rebolting projects. This year 15 projects were approved.
Friends of Pinnacles would like to express its sincere gratitude to the Access Fund for supporting our ongoing rebolting efforts in such a direct fashion.
Okay. Enough talk. We need to get out to the crags and replace some bolts!
