Estimated volunteer man hours required to complete this job.....? A lot. And that's just Beauty! This represents just a fraction of the work completed recently. Beauty has about 145 routes that are almost all in good shape now but that's just 145 of the 2500 routes in the gorge. NRAC is fighting against time to replace the slowly deteriorating bolts that still lurk in the region. Just know that merely attending the Rendevous raises money to continue this effort. Donating money doesn't hurt either ;-) As long as we continue to be supported by the climbers that love this region NRAC will continue to make it a safer place to climb. See you all soon at the Rendevous!
