Warpaint Rebolting Alert!

Heads Up: On the weekend of Nov 5-6, 2005, Warpaint, on Westworld Dome in the West Stronghold, will be upgraded with new bolts. The route was originally established in 1989 by Eric Fazio-Rhicard and Bob Kerry using 5/16 buttonheads and SMC hangers, some of which are now exhibiting rusting on both the heads and the hangers.
When the dates were set for this project the planners were unaware of the fact that the Beanfest was also scheduled for this weekend. Due to the logistics involved in coordinating multiple people to assist with the work involved in a project of this magnitude it will not be reasonable to postpone. Please accept our apologies for the hassle this causes to anyone who was planning to do the route during this time, and we sincerely hope that the increased margin of safety that the new bolts will provide in the future will make up for the present inconvenience. Anyone interested in contributing to the local climbing community by assisting with this project would be most welcome! Contact me for details.
Please help pass the word to anyone you know that is planning on attending the Beanfest and who may not have access to the Internet.
