The Auction Is Live and Ends in Just a few days

>>>> Check it out here


Turn your extra stuff into replacement bolts on classic climbs!

Here is how it works
1 - Donate anything worth $40 or more before August 1 to the American Safe Climbing Assn
2 - You get a tax deduction for the value of the item
3 - On August 3, the item is listed on eBay. On August 10, the auction ends and 100% of proceeds go to the ASCA
4 - Planet Granite then matches the amount

In summary: your unused stuff gets you a nice tax deduction, you de-clutter your closet/garage and more classic climbs get their anchors replaced.

How to donate
 Make sure your item is worth $40. Make your best guess or go to this page and scroll down to the bottom of Step 1
 Ship or drop off the item to the address below:
SuperTopo
C/O ASCA Auction
21 Golden Gate Dr
Suite B
San Rafael, CA 94901

Any question? email reboltingnews@gmail.com or post your question below

Example items to donate:
