the ridge boulder
I have many routes that I want to bolt, don't worry about location/legality, it's all in a legal area for bolting. I am curious on what kind of drill is need, what brand, how much they cost, how long the battery will last. Where do I buy bolts/hardware/chains? How do I know if my bolt is safe and it won't pop. I don't want to bolt with epoxy because I don't want to wait for it to dry(I want to be able to hang off the bolts the second after I put them in). Also I'm curious about what tools are needed to clear loose rock. Please any tips about bolting routes are greatly appreciated, I would like to bolt fast and efficiently.

Do everone a favor and find someone in your area who would be willing to take you out and show you how to do it. There's WAY more to it then just drilling the hole and slamming the bolt in and an internet forum is not a great place to learn. I'm sure there's plenty of climbers in Tahoe area who would be stoked to help a 19 yr old out!
