Mr Dulux/Blackl/Fukutu kept that line going for sometime, providing much mirth to the many readers of what was arguably the best and most irreverent climbing magazine ever produced in Australia.

I actually placed a couple of anchors there about 12 months ago because my partner and I were training for Yosemite aid climbing. After extensive inspection I also put up a bolt ladder but only with small dynabolts simply for training purposes (doing bolt ladders as fast as possible). Unfortunately later on, for the first time, I noticed the faintest of markings at the base of the 'training crack' beside it.

My apologies if this has offended or defaced what might be a historical route. I didn't notice til afterwards.

I suggest not leading on the bolts, they are essentially only 'rivets'.

The anchors however are solid.

Just noticed this and I also know that some of the gung-ho locals down here who don't seem to know any better have been leading on said dynabolts. Do you reckon we could remove them before one of the gym bunnies screws up?

Perhaps but there is a number of routes down there with dynabolts from the first fleet. My bolt ladder is next to a pretty bloody hard crack. Anyone with half a brain and the experience to get more than a meter or two off the deck should know better. The rock is so strong and the bolts are so numerous that I don;t think it will be an issue til they significantly corrode. By then the state of them should be enough of a deterrent.

There are two routes bolted with good stainless expansions and hangers on the far right end of the quarry.

Never spotted them. New?
