Bolting means putting up new routes in the canyons of Sinai. As rock climbing is still in it's early stages in Egypt it takes the effort of experts volunteering with their experience to build new routes and provide a growing community with new challenges. Learning the ways of placing secure expansion bolts and judging the quality of the typical granite found in Sinai as well as defining lines across rock faces takes a variety of skills and a lot of experience. Let our expert Wolfgang Vogl together with Timo Elony teach you their findings, introduce you to the typical tasks of bolting and hopefully inspire you to join the effort of bolting climbing routes one day!
