From our fundraiser campaign launched last year, we raised a remarkable sum to purchase nearly 200 titanium bolts and anchors and epoxy to re-bolt climbing routes at Playa Fronton near Las Galeras, Dominican Republic. We started rebolting last May but progress has been slower than anticipated, mostly because of a lack of manpower. We are seeking volunteers, preferably experienced with drilling and installing glue-in bolts (although we can train you if you are reasonably handy). If you have any interest in spending your next vacation in the DR and would be willing to spend a day or two (or more!) assisting with rebolting, please inquire by PM. We have tools and equipment, just short of hands to get bolts installed by end of this year! Fluency in Spanish a plus. Note this is a volunteer effort, thus there is no salary and no travel expenses can be covered.

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
