Hey Mountain Project climbers...after much delay on my end (side work and overtime at the fire dept.,) I was able to send out a sizeable donation to our soldiers overseas. I sent roughly 100+ handholds, 100+ foot holds, 50 bolts, wrenches, and 6 rolls of route tape.  I am hoping that this helps round out their wall.  The OP has the (2) USPS tracking numbers and the shipping total was $34.  I am more than comfortable with the gear donation, anyone want to chip in on the shippjng?  Just let me know and thanks in advance!

Hey everyone!After much planning and effort we have successfully put up our climbing wall in Baghdad (Full sized mattress we found is our landing pad, pictured below). We seriously could not have done this without you, and the soldiers absolutely love it. Thank you again for providing an outlet for the soldiers and a way to remind them of home.

I have about 100 T nut/bolts I will send out to you courtesy of the Estes Park Mtn Shop for further expansion or if you know of other units building walls. Best, Pine- Estes Park, Colorado.
