New titanium bolts from the manufacturer are being delivered to Railay, Thailand, in early December. We need to get about 220 of them back to the U.S. and shipping is very expensive. We are hoping other climbers will help us out by bringing them home in their baggage. There is NOTHING ILLEGAL about this and no one is profiting.  

The bolts are destined for the California coast and Cayman Brac.

The bolts are clean and dry.  You can bring back whatever amount you're comfortable with. For reference, 40 bolts only weigh 7 pounds (3.2kg) and are about the same size as 10 quickdraws.

So if you are climbing at Railay in December, January or February, returning either to Denver or the Bay Area, and would be willing to do a good deed for our sport, please contact me.

Is there any heroin in these bolts?


Because that would be RAD.

Lord Slime!! Long time...


Are these being produced in APAC? Why are then being delivered to Thailand? And are you putting these in routes there?

Good job man.

bump...

we're here now, but moving on to other place (e.g. not returning to CA). but we *might* come back in December, and we might be with someone who would be coming back.

not sure how useful that is, but if you send us a message later, it will job the memory.

"k-man"? What's your r.c handle?

Don't know what you mean by "APAC". The bolts were manufactured in Asia and delivered there because the bulk of them are being placed in Thailand by the Thaitanium Project. Of the ones coming to the States, 100 are going primarily to Mickey's Beach, and I'm taking 120 to Cayman Brac, where we're putting up new routes.

Not Mickey's primarily, there aren't that many more bolts there that aren't already titanium. They are going towards future CA seaside crag replacement - Mickey's Beach, Point Dume (if the State Parks let us replace bolts...), etc.
