Smith Rock State Park is an amazing place near and dear to many in Oregon and beyond .

Please help R-A-D.org  replace the rock climbing bolts with Stainless steel Chemical glue-in bolts and replace anchor links and rings with Stainless Steel . 
All other bolts losen after time in the soft tuft rock needing to be replaced again.
These bolts have a life span of at least 50 years. 
R-A-D believes in sustainable bolting practices. 

Funds with be used to procure the specialized tools and equipment , necessary for this full time job.  

With a Goal of 200 pitches to be replaced in 2017.

We will completly re-bolt the most popular sectors and multi pitch climbs at Smith.
R-A-D follows ASCA mission statement only to replace, not add any bolts to existing climbs. Leaving the climbs notorious reputation in place.

We would like to begin when there are adequate funds befor the new year and when temperatures allow in the spring.

Celebtating in Late Fall 2018 at the Ranch house.

First came to Smith at 16 in 1989 to cut my fingers on these first of there kind in the USA modern sport climbs. Built by climbing visonary and guidbook author Alan Watts. We have now teamed up to help Smith Rock.

R-A-D has worked in Lebanon, Jordan, Madagascar, Armenia, and opened 100's of climbs in the USA

With climbing walls with all grades for all climbers, it essential have them all replaced with these perminent bolt placements, to ensure the safety and history of this area.
