There's a little bouldering area near the pumping station at Narrowneck with an easy traverse and some harder stuff under "Codeine Kid" and "LSD". The easy traverse is a nice warm up and good practice for beginner climbers.
In the last few weeks, someone has started bashing rocks into the larger holds on the easy traverse so they're unusable - presumably a climber, 'cause they were put back in after I took them all out.
I'm all for filling in chipped holds, but as far I know, these aren't chipped - or if they were, it must have been 15-20 years ago or more. More likely, they were created when the whole traverse was "chipped" out of the cliff to make way for the road. So I don't see the point of this - if anyone finds the well-established traverse too easy, why not just avoid the big holds?
If you're doing this, can you post or PM me to explain what you're up to - otherwise we're both going to waste a lot of time - you filling in the holds and me diggin them out again!
Dont think it was climbers restoring the balance of nature. The pockets not the only hold that got tampered. there were natural holds to the right of the start of lsd that were smashed off with a rock or similar. I noticed smashed bottles in surrounds and make shift fire place. unfortunately this place is easy access for drunk idiots "enjoying" nature. Glad someone else noticed the destruction. thought poeple didnt like the bouldering there.
