Hey botoxbot, Australian climbing has a long and steeped tradition of bored people who don't know how to place bolts throwing caution to the wind and giving it a good old Aussie go. In fact there are several forum regulars who would probably be happy to mentor you, you don't happen to live near Sydney do you? The easiest way to place bolts is to just hammer them into a crack, its hard work and sometimes the rock cracks but just keep trying, you'll get it on the third of fourth try. If you don't know where to bolt just pick any 3 star route in the guidebook as these usually have pretty good cracks for bolting. Also, you can get heaps of free bolts by stealing them from the roadside, such as traffic lights and give way signs, also the ground bolts on street lamps are pretty big and gnarly but sometimes they can be hard to unscrew. So grab some bolts, grab a hammer and get out there and have some fun.
