As a climber I believed that historical fixed protection should be left in place providing there was other adequate protection available.

However a parks vic. manager bought me back to reality. We were looking at replacing unsafe fixed protection at a climbing crag. He/she was agreable (unofficially) to me replacing unsafe fixed protection but not adding any more bolts. When I showed him/her a historical piton that was no longer needed and I said it should be retained for 'historical' purposes the (unofficial) parks vic respose was 'would you be prepared to expain the historical significance to a coroner'.

I should add that in this case I choose not remove the piton for many reasons. On other occasions I have come accross loose or severely corroded pitons and I have removed them provided there was other protection available.
