The NZAC Bolting Fund began in May 2001. The name changed in later years to the NZAC Access Fund to better reflect the Fund’s full purpose of not just replacing fixed protection points, but to also consider other requests for funds to improve access and facilities at climbing areas. In 2018 a decision was made to split the fund into two, which has resulted in the NZAC Bolting Fund and the NZAC Access Fund.
Notes: The NZAC financial year runs from 1 July – 30 June. Access Fund grants are mostly made in hardware at cost.
