Legacy Restoration Project

The Legacy Restoration Project started in September of 2016 with a goal of restoring some of the world's most iconic rock climbs. The Project involves cleaning, removing loose rock and old fixed gear, replacement of bad bolts and unsafe anchors, and eliminating aid. The result is the sustainable, ethical modernization of historically classic routes. Once restored and modernized these iconic routes will be accessible for all to climb, honoring climbing's history while protecting its future.

Don't wait! Buy your ticket today.
