Climb Tech Removable Bolt
You can use the Removable Bolt as pro, or, if you decide a real bolt should go in the hole, extract the removable and set a bolt.
The removable bolt has revolutionized sport climbing by making the backbreaking work of equipping bolted climbs much easier—just ask Chris Sharma, Randy Leavitt or Dani Andrada. Simply rap in, drill a hole, either to set up a directional or where you think the real bolt should go, then slip in a removable bolt. You can use the Removable Bolt as pro, or, if you decide a real bolt should go in the hole, extract the removable and set a bolt. With the holding power of a cam, the RB could make bolts obsolete in the backcountry, or in access-sensitive areas. The newest iteration of Climb Tech removable bolts is practically impossible to get stuck in the hole (a problem with the older version), thanks to a patented cleaning bushing. Weighted placements do sometimes require both hands to clean.
*Rated to 2,650 pounds *Patented cleaning bushing and double spoon camming design
Recommended for new routing, backcountry, temporary placements (i.e., directionals, provisional TR anchors/rappel stations).
