New titanium bolts from the manufacturer are being delivered to Railay, Thailand, in early December. We need to get 220 of them back to the U.S. and shipping is very expensive. We are hoping other climbers will help us out by bringing them home in their baggage. There is NOTHING ILLEGAL about this and no one is profiting.  

The bolts are destined for the California coast and Cayman Brac.

The bolts are clean and dry.  You can bring back whatever amount you're comfortable with. For reference, 40 bolts only weigh 7 pounds (3.2kg) and are about the same size as 10 quickdraws.

So if you are climbing at Railay in December, January or February, returning either to Denver or the Bay Area, and would be willing to do a good deed for our sport, please contact me.

Hey just out of curiosity isn't there a big rebolting effort going on in Thailand? I would think you would need help getting the bolts going the other direction...

The titanium project is awesome and Thank YOU! If I were going to be in Thailand I would def help out

Yes, this is the third year in a row that the Thaitanium Project is doing extensive rebolting. The bolts we're bringing to the States are only about 10% of the total number of bolts being delivered.

I can bring some back. I will be there from dec 26th thru jan 24th, & will be flying back into Phoenix, so shipping will be cheap. Or in stead of shipping from here I will be in Joshua Tree in the Spring, and maybe someone could meet me there? Let me know.

We bought 150 of those for use in Hawaii, they are reasonable, although I strongly wish they were threaded instead.
