Bolting

As more people gain skills to descend canyons in the UK there is a much higher chance of people placing bolts in our canyons.  OST, alongside UKCG, feels that it is very important to educate people on how to place and inspect bolts in canyons in the safest possible way.

This 2 day workshop covers all of the basics on how to place bolts correctly in order build a safe anchor.  We hope that people will place bolts responsibly with thought and in a useful manner for others to use in the future.
