The Irish Solution to The Ben Lomond Problem 8-Oct-2017 At 5:05:52 PM Vwills
Seeing as I seem to be quoted, my 2 cents worth is
- generally I think if enough people are climbing at the Ben to cause erosion issues in the descent gully then an abseil station is warranted as the lesser of 2 evils.
Along the same line, If by some miracle recreational climbing was permitted on Balls pyramid again sometime in the future, then there would be a good argument for an abseil descent to stop people leaving tat and to keep them away from areas of know phasmid habitat.

However there would need to be ongoing vigilance at he Ben as slippery slopes do exist ( as demonstrated clearly at the Governor at Kaputar over the last few years ) , so if the default is no bolts and people have to walk down, then so be it. The idea of a chain seems like an illogical compromise and no better than bolts
