Most days I walk my dog around the local streets and tracks. I can always tell when school holidays have started and the holiday lets are full because suddenly dog turds appear all over the footpaths.

There seems to be a mentality that once you're out in (what you perceive as) the sticks, then the usual rules of civilized behaviour don't apply. You can misbehave, leave a mess and no-one cares.

I hate online bitch sessions, so rarely post to Chuckstone. But sometimes I make exceptions. Thanks Vanessa for pursuing this issue. It is very disappointing to hear of the ongoing misbehaviour and vandalism at Kaputar, especially when it seems to involve several perpetrators. One is easier to deal with. The time to take a stand is overdue.

Kaputar is in an unfortunate situation, lacking the continuity of a local climbing community that can take 'ownership' and maintain local standards. So it falls to the 'diaspora' of climbers that love Kaputar and its place in the climbosphere to act.

If the description of the Lindesay bolting is accurate, this amounts to an appropriation and desecration of a long-established crag. And I thought we got rid of that kind of antediluvian route-marking decades ago.

Some younger climbers might not realise that the NSW Bolt Wars go back at least to the Ewbank era of the late 60s (1960s that is). Ewbank removed many of his own bolts, and wholesale clean-ups probably started with the Echo Point Bolt Route. Retro-bolting too has a sad history, back at least to Hocus Pocus at Piddo, belted into tragedy by commercial interests and yet ultimately left that way.

So trad-dads and mid-grade-mummies, lets see what we can do about correcting the Kaputar situation, cleaning up the turds and sending a strong message to unwelcome renegades.
