NAZCC Anchor Replacement Initiative

What is the Anchor Replacement Initiative (ARI) ?

The NAZCC’s Anchor Replacement Initiative started in November of 2019 to address the growing issue of aging and inadequate fixed hardware on routes in Northern Arizona. The mission of the ARI is to improve the quality, reliability and sustainability of routes and fixed hardware throughout Northern Arizona.

How can I help?

#2 SPREAD THE WORD : We need your help to get the word out to the community. Let your friends and climbing friendly businesses know about the NAZCC Anchor Replacement Initiative and encourage them to donate.
