Bolting at Piddo 13-May-2011 At 11:26:21 AM garbie
I don't know if anyone's said it yet, but this route is not even close to being the worse route at the crag. Piddo's great, with lots of classics, but some routes are really "of historical interest" only and are just mank, and no one does them. Can't see the big problem.

I'm not saying things are perfect in Europe, (chipping, glued on holds, bolted cracks etc etc) but they do some things right, including bolting easy lines, and bolting them for people who climb them, ie beginners, kids, pensioners (we saw lots of crusty English at Spanish crags, getting some sun, doing bolted 5's and 6's).

There's a fair bit of elitism in Aus climbing. I say each to his own, do the climbs you want to do. A few more easy sport routes is not the end of climbing as we know it.
