Bolt Fund – El Condado re-equipping

Roca Verde is proud that we have established a bolt fund and I have started to get in contact with those hardy souls who are doing new routes or re-equipping.

This week I got in contact with David Acido who has taken on the task of cleaning up and re-equipping El Condado.  Close to Pola de Laviana this was an important proving ground in the late 90’s but due to the road being moved it has made it a less accessible and almost forgotten spot.

David has taken on the task of cleaning and re-equipping and so with money from the Roca Verde bolt fund I provided him with a load of stainless steel bolts and some belays too. I said I’d also help him Hopefully we will also produce new topos for the area and re-vitalise this once popular spot.

You can see more on his Facebook group
