Removing glued in rings/U's

Just wondering what the preferred method of dealing with unwanted/unwarranted rings/U's.

I think each approach has its own merits, so my vote goes to Option 5,

Could everyone please calm down and start playing nicely? Including not posting topics like this one clearly only posted to annoy others...

Otherwise I'm going to go postal and start disabling access to everyone and anyone I feel are continuing the escalate the cr@p that is being flung around here at the moment!

So a word of warning - at this time if you suddenly can't login - there will be no messages beforehand - just mark two weeks off in your calendar and try logging in again then!

sorry Dalai but is that a personal attack on me? what have I done to you?

Hi Dalai

This post is not really intended to annoy anyone but to find out what people think! There are trad lines in the Blueies getting bolted and the bolts need to be removed! The people doing really should know better and an example needs to be made! These were the best options I could think of at the time, they may seem a little provocative to those who support current sport bolting practice, but I left out the really provocative ones like "sending the bolters the remnants of there bolts with a note telling them to piss off" or "using the bolts to add extra bolts that they dont need to clip to there nearby climbs" et cetera I actually came up with some pretty in-ya-face options but left them out!
It was the bolting of trad lines in the first place what caused it! And I think every one agrees that you should not do that, and just about every bolting guide I have seen says so too! What I am talking about is unwanted/unwarranted/unnecessary ringbolts and U's on trad climbs, not chopping bolts with the same sort of gay abandon of the people who put them in! Enough is enough so stop it!
I'm not looking to escalate anything apart from trad climbing, instead of bolted crack climbing.

Hopefully this does not get me kicked off the Forum! Hopefully it generates some active debate about whether these people should be allowed to continue doing what they are doing1

as for the ethical BS, good luck.....
