I have contacted them but they seem to think it’s their god given right to bolt anything they like. They supposedly spent a long time (meaning a few days) “analysing” the rock, and they consulted two climbing gurus Simon Atkins and Tom Oczapowski. They claim that it’s supposedly common practice in the Blue Mountains to put up new climbs using expansion bolts (which are then replaced after a couple of years). The bolts were allegedly placed in “quartzite veins” not sandstone. Then I copped abuse for supposedly suggesting they caused Nick’s death – which I never did. I think they were simply desperate to put up some new routes just so they could mention that they used “ultralight Bosch gear” – as it was one of their sponsors.
