The Irish Solution to The Ben Lomond Problem 21-Sep-2017 At 5:29:40 PM Keenas
This isn't really an example of bolt proliferation, or bolts appearing on a previously bolt free crag, but I think there is a link between some, and then more, bolts appearing in places they shouldn't be.
Mount Piddington has always had some bolts, especially for anchors, but recently had ring bolts added here and there for easy lowering off. Since then, more rings have been added to routes where trad protection has been used, without drama, for 40+ years.
Of course the Ben is a different situation entirely, but bolt free crags are a rare beauty that ought to be preserved.
