ACE, BCC (Boulder Climbing Community), and Eldorado State Park are working together to replace old fixed hardware in Eldorado Canyon. A 'like for like' hardware replacement policy already exists, so what we need now is a way to track progress and get some much needed work done.
ACE has established a working database of hardware which is in need of replacement. That working list is available here.
Everyone is invited to contribute to this list so we all can be made aware of the fixed hardware progress and priorities. Just register on the ACE website and contribute to the list. Its fast and easy.
What is needed now is community involvement - stay tuned for updates from the BCC. We will plan community events targeted at replacing hardware in specific areas of Eldorado. Climbers can gather, learn about hardware replacement, get some work done, and meet other climbers in the process.
As a reminder, a permit for 'like for like' replacement must be secured from the Park Headquarters prior to completing any work.
ACE will gladly supply the drill, bits, prybars and any necessary hardware to anyone wishing to do like-for-like replacements in ECSP. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org
