Araps Bolting Gone Silly 19-Apr-2012 At 2:43:49 PM chalkischeap
The bolt in Trojan was still there in March. This is one of Australias most famous TRAD climbs! People all over the world have this on their ticklist.

It is the only bolt and it's next to a crack in the middle of the pitch. The bolt makes the climb easier because it's a strenuous position for placing cams.

It also takes away much of the challenge of trad onsighting because it gives reassurance of safety from 4m below (run it out, theres a big bolt up there) to 4m above the bolt.

One third of this pitch feels like a sport climb!

Feel free to remove it if you can. Its a 12mm expansion bolt with Fixe hanger.
