I realise I am being slightly hypocritical, as a bolt placer myself in certain locations, but these seem ugly and unnecessary. As Neil says, the old anchors are often back, often machine bolts and actually can be quite hard to locate. We think the more ugly rings were placed by defence. These are another step up in visual pollution.
I may be a bit stupid when it comes to high lines, but if you can't run the line back to the more hidden existing anchors, why can't you extend them like we do with temporary static ropes and then set up high lines. I realise you need a fixation point near the arÍte that won't roll, but can you not use directional trad gear? Basically why can't machine bolts be used/ bring your own hangers and carabiners....
