Black Diamond & WARI in American Fork Canyon

During the April, 2019 Black Diamond/Wasatch Anchor Replacement Initiative work day, we decided to focus our effort towards the Escape Buttress in American Fork Canyon. With BD's extremely competent employees we were able to replace approximately 70 bolts that were placed mostly by Brian and Jonathan Smoot in the early 1990's. All the bolts we replaced had mixed metals (stainless steel hangars and plated steel bolts). All the hardware we used in the replacement effort is stainless, and all the bolts we used are ClimbTech Wave bolts. A huge thanks to Black Diamond and these dedicated BD employees for your attention to the future of fixed anchors in the Wasatch.
