So they acknowledge that bolts exist and are necessary for climbing. What does that mean for litigation because of bolt failure? What does that mean for the placing of new bolts?

See how many stacked negatives and vagueisms you can find in this sentence:

"As a general proposition, it is arguable that in some cases the risk that a bolt may fail in the absence of negligence by anyone is an inherent risk of climbing."

Good on you, Gordon Brysland - you constructed a sentence that no one but a lawyer could parse. I write for a living, but you've defeated me!

If I had to paraphrase, I'd try the following:
"Bolts can fail, like anyone can fall off a set of ranger-constructed stairs, but that doesn't mean the person setting up the permanent fixture is to blame."

Not hard to do.

Thats a typically stupid statement about bolted climbing by someone who typically only boulders and knows climbing mostly from youtube and climbing forums.
Ever hear about the croat route near bunny bucket butress?
Do some homework and get back to us with an apology.

I'm confused...
Did stugang post on 28/1/2013 or ratherbeclimbinV9?
Or is ratherbeclimbinV9 trying to start a debate with ratherbeclimbinV9?
Does anyone care?

They are different people - one is an imposter, with a full stop after the username.

The ID's are all over the shop again...
At least one of the above V9's is davidn, stugang is currently Eduardo Slabovic, and Eduardo Slabofvic is currently stugang. and was also Spugang recently.

There are others who currently operate under different user ID's to what they started out as on this site as well, but their current monikers are relatively stable!
