General Fixed Hardware Review Process

Our goal as a committee is to make the fixed hardware review process quick yet effective. Here are some step-by-step guidelines to help streamline the process.  Ideally, we should be able to get routes approved within a week or two. Remember, routes requiring fixed hardware are limited to areas with an established trail. If a developer wishes to develop a cliff without established trails, pre-approval must be given by the Park before a fixed hardware review process takes place. For more information contact the committee at

Step 1:
Review the Fixed Hardware Guidelines

Step 2:
If the climb is not affected by seasonal closures, toprope the proposed route (if possible) and take a picture indicating where the bolts will go.

Step 3:
Submit a General Fixed Hardware Application.


Step 4:
Once an application is approved, a permit will be issued by the park. Upon issuance of the permit the applicant has one calendar year to install the hardware. If more than one year has lapsed and the bolts were not placed, the application will be considered null and void and must be re-applied for.

Note: the bolting permit is valid for 4 months, but can be re-validated for up to one year after its original validation date.

Step 5:
Notify the Park of date that hardware will be installed, and install the hardware.
