Hey Mike, can you check with Warrick regarding the use of rings on his route please or PM me his contact details? I do like to contact the FA prior to rebolting anyone's routes?
Macca - I recently contacted a FA of some classic 80s routes that I plan to rebolt using rings instead of carrots and he agreed that rings are more appropriate today. I'm not going to tell you where they are in case you get any stupid ideas. These routes are bolted - they are not trad lines that are being defaced with bolts and fumbling around with a bolt plate does not make a route "bold" it just makes it old fashioned.
