The SUI runs a resin fixed anchor programme, installing resin fixed anchors where required in caves for permanent access.  This system began in the 1990s and is ongoing.  The anchors are placed by SUI members who are trained in the procedure.  Requests for fixed anchor placements should be directed to the SUI’s Bolting Coordinator at bolting@caving.ie

If you want to receive training in resin fixed anchor installation the SUI runs training on an annual basis.  The next course is due to take place on Saturday 13th July 2014 in Co Fermanagh (provisional date).  Places can be booked by emailing boltingcourse@caving.ie

The Resin Fixed Anchor Programme and training ties in with the SUI’s Bolting Policy available on the Members Section of the site
