...are looking pretty sketchy (worn through). Does anyone know if one can donate money to ASCA for a specific area to be re-chained?
Alternatively, am I just a wuss and the links are fine?

I don't think they need to be rechained at all. If some of the rope end biners are looking worn, just replace them with one of yours. Its a nice community service, I do it all the time in places where sandy ropes eat thru fixed biners. Cut the tape wads off, throw away the old fixed biner and leave a decent one, please not your absolute worst, everyone will love you for it.

Send a PM to 'boltdude" ..it's greg barnes he's the president of the ASCA and does alot of climbing/bolt replacement in RR. I'm sure he'd love a donation to replace that stuff.

Unless I'm remembering incorrectly, there aren't end biners, just chains. It's possible some of them had screwlinks at the bottom but I didn't remember seeing any.

The Las Vegas Climbers Liasion council has talked about doing a anchor (chain) replacement work day in the Calico Hills in the fall. But that is a long way away...
