Trust me, I've had a giggle about how amusingly optimistic it is for people to be placing factory stainless rings designed to last 50yrs.

Not sure how you'll go finding the info you're after on the web for Thompsons point. If it does turn up you'll find the "Desent Gully Walls" full of easier climbs, other climbers with climbing guides and easier to locate.

All of "New Nowra" is on the web and a worthy expedition.

I often have a giggle about how those same people think mild steel won't last and that they would probably rebolt a 20 year old car with stainless in order to be 'safe' . . .

You're a spaz. All the Nowra town crags including Thommos are on the web on the ACA. Just print them off and youll be right. Ill be avoiding the hordes at the descent gully slabs for sure on the weekend!

Heres the thommos guide:

Sniff, but there's no topos, or decent descriptions on how to get there?

Or has Nowra been Neilified and there's nice painted wooden signs to each crag.

If not, then there is always the RAW DEAL response!
A retro-bolted ring that was placed too close to good gear placements!
If they wont learn, then we will have to learn them !!

Park at end of Jonsson Rd at Nowra - drive further on than Google Maps shows on a decent dirt road. Park at at cliff edge with powerlines. There will probably be heaps of climbers cars parked here. Walk right along cliff top and down first descent gully - about 100m. Use someone elses guidebook for topos!

The Raw Deal - had me in stitches . . .
Thats is absolutely awesome, is it for real ?? . . .
Where can I get one? Or is that just a 'demonstration model' . . .

Are you associated with SCA, NAC or DCA?
Do I know you? I'd love to join! Send details please . ..

Cheers
MM

From what I can tell from the photo, its just a bolt and a couple of large washers, all of which are readily available from the underside of cars parked at the Shipley car park. Look for AWD "soft-roaders" with "My Family" stick figure stickers on the back windscreen.

Laughed aloud at that photo (and the bolt source post), which kind of puts a new spin on red tagging routes? ~> Which by the way, is another strategy that someone told me DCA might use to confuse the clip-up masses, as one never knows when a higher bolt might be suss* or not!

(* Gottabesafe eh? ... but it's ok, as I can hero loop such nonsense and sketchy-aid on!! Heh, heh, heh.)
