Cosmic was one of the first places I went climbing and therefor holds a very special place in my
climbing memory. Whilst there is definitely need for some of the old bolts to come out and new ones to
go in it would be a great shame to see it become just another shiny stainless clip up affair (not that
this is likely given the access at the moment). The crag has great character and is a testament to the
vision of developers (all be it with some not so minimal impact ethics) .
Long live fumbling with bolt plates. Go Austraila!!
