If you would like to support climbing on the island, then a small donation to the bolt fund helps the continued development of sport routes on the island.

The site itself (together with it's sister site requires around €200 per year to run in hosting fees, SSL certificates, and domain name registration fees alone (not to mention who knows how much in coffee, diesel, etc.), all of which are borne by the (currently unemployed) developer. If you'd like to provide direct support then you could consider buying him a coffee.
