The T shirt is still up for grabs, but there is another route next to it which I was unable to complete the
other day, so I may keep the location a state secret untill it get it. Once coomleted, I will offer a fluffy toy
for the second ascent.

Will it be one of those "rap grid bolter" fluffy toys I've been so desperately wanting? They're very hard to get hold of - something to do with being simey's mascot or something...

This is a public forum. Can you please refrain from personal abuse even if they are a friend of yours.

Time for a time out.

Now where have I seen those words written before?


Hmm.

A case of pot calling kettle black??

Climbing ethics, values, styles etc can be debated and discussed, opinions are just that - rhetoric. What I am more concerned about is the physical damage to a natural rock face and how we can rectify the damage, damage being the permanent placement of man made objects in a natural rock face and resultant damage to the rock.

To the first ascentionist's - you mentioned that you won't be "rushing up there to remove the bolts"; last week I noticed that the bolts have not been removed. I thought a 3 month timeframe would suffice?

Can I please once again ask you to remove YOUR antiquated ironmongery from the previously mentioned rock?

Swinging has eight bolts? What happened there?

Climbed on the Touchstone wall a few weeks ago. My opinion (as a relatively disinterested South
Australian) is that:

1. Touch Type is a worthwhile pitch.
2. A bolt or two is necessary.
3. I would have called it Touchstone DF.
4. The rap bolts are convenient but not essential.
5. Touchstone RHF (up the crack) deserves more attention.
6. If the RHF is 17, I think Touch Type is more 18 than 19.

I think that you should maybe get the hint R.S and realise that Simey isn't going to pull out the bolts, now or ever. Its a good climb, I and others use it reasonably frequently for guiding and if it was closer to the pines it would get even more accents.

i think what he means is that there are 2 bolts at the moment to climb on, but the remains of 6 other bolts (holes, etc)

I see online that there is a lower off anchor now above it. That may account for the extra bolts. It was
suuuucccch a long way over to the trapeze anchor after all.
