Or drill two holes right next to the bolt and hit it sideways into this hole. Its actually pretty neat, since you end up patching a ~16mm hole rather than a 10mm hole, and you don't need to do too much hammering/crow-baring of the surrounding rock.

+1... thats the quickest solution and with a good patch job is the way to go for glue ins.

Well such codes are lost in the dungeons of interweblandia. Polish them up stick em up on noticeboards and gyms, and clearly say the consequence of a breach is a chopping...and when you see a breach chop it.

Thanks for the info. I can see why the preference is to be sure about puting them in in the first place.

Easily found - follow link on front page . . .

Maybe this should be more widely circulated, and followed . . .
Though not exactly sure what their breach policy actually is . . .

Nup 15 sec attention span so if I don't get it 1st try or 2nd try or third try I won't get it ever. Also who gives a fck what their breach is just publish yours and the consequences and get on with life.

Two years on now; ... so what was the outcome of (this thread's) subject climb chopping/retros, ie is the trad line still bolted?

Post edit:
As feedback on other similar 'line crossing events' that took place at about the same time at other locations; I have since heard that certain bolts have been removed at Mt Kiera and Mt Buffalo...

This thread is such a wank. How many of you are climbing 25 trad? Yeh right. Why don't both of you suck it up and aim to climb like this bloke, who doesn't give a s**t about bolts on his trad route:

Here's an interesting ethical question from the video above. At one point he states "These tufas are fragile, if I fall they could blow" (or something like that).

The question is:

Is it more ethical in the situation where the gear could destroy the hold/rock/climb, to place a bolt instead?

Wouldn't a bolt do much less damage than breaking off a feature that would not break off under body weight? I'm talking about a critical placement here, not one that can be skipped.

You realise the discussion you're replying to is more than 2 years old?

>(snip)

Grade 25 trad is not something to aspire to, or be proud of? ... especially if one manages to do it consistently...
