one easy step that CAWA could take is to specify what types of bolts/anchors are suitable in this region and/or rock type

bolt/anchor standards like this are common worldwide now and are easily adapted to local conditions

second easyish step is to create a bolting fund whereby CAWA holds a stock of standard anchors which can be made available to members at a discounted price. Non members would pay a premium.

the above can be funded by subs, sponsorship, donations and guidebook revenues

Thirdly CAWA could facilitate bolting workshops where attendees could be taught the hows and whys of bolting safely

The chipping question should be subject of debate especially as the remaining unchipped lines are diminishing quickly

the sysytems described above have worked in other climbing communitys and everyone benefits
