They help cover up the sound when bolting in ClearCreek.

Yates used to make a "muffler".

Cut up a two liter pop bottle, add some baffles and some filler....

Take the battery off. Presto 1 super quiet drill!

Just ask the question aloud, "What's the best way to build an anchor here?" and then drill away. The screaming match of climbers arguing about the "best" way to over-engineer or under-engineer and anchor will surely drown out the hammer drill.

Rap a pillow around the drill in a back pack. I've seen it done in a NP and it worked well, I couldn't here it down on the busy trail below.

I made a sound suppressor for my buddys potato gun when I was in college. It actually worked pretty well too!

My recommendation would be the SilencerCo Saker 7.62 if using 1/2" bolts or the Harvester 30 5.56 if placing 3/8" bolts. They work great with both semi-automatic and fully automatic drills. Of course you have to use subsonic bolts to ensure the suppressors work properly and you'll need an NFA class III permit to bolt silently, but once you get the paperwork straight away you should be fine.

Saker 7.62:



Harvester 30:

Pound bolts in with rubber mallet to silence.

The ultimate silencers: Get a rack. Run out the easy unprotectable parts. Leave the stone for someone else.

... and since I just closed out the original question, maybe we can talk about silencers for cow bells!

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
