Hey everyone. I am just getting back into climbing after a knee injury, and I noticed some of the anchors where I climb are pretty worn out. I would like to do my part and help to get them replaced with some safer gear, but I have neither the skill nor expertise to fix them myself. They are mostly open hooks or chains w/ a mussy hook. I don't want to mess around with something that people trust their lives to without being sure I am not putting anyone at risk. I was wondering if anyone can let me know who to get in touch with for Malibu Creek to try and replace a few of the anchors. Thanks for the help everyone! :)

My understanding is that any bolting (including replacement) has been outlawed in Malibu Creek. I remember reading that somewhere. But I could be wrong. I also recall the news saying the park was going to be shut down due to tax cuts. I guess that never ended up happening.

You’ll probably draw more focused attention to your thread by including “Malibu Creek” in the title.Wink

Go to link below and post a question to the people that frequent Malibu. I looks like bolting is OK but there is a power drill ban, so it hand and hammer drilling only (I think). List up the routs that have bad/questionable anchors.
