Interesting article on bolts in QLD National Parks 28-Jan-2013 At 4:48:45 PM davidn
See how many stacked negatives and vagueisms you can find in this sentence:

"As a general proposition, it is arguable that in some cases the risk that a bolt may fail in the absence of negligence by anyone is an inherent risk of climbing."

Good on you, Gordon Brysland - you constructed a sentence that no one but a lawyer could parse. I write for a living, but you've defeated me!

If I had to paraphrase, I'd try the following:
"Bolts can fail, like anyone can fall off a set of ranger-constructed stairs, but that doesn't mean the person setting up the permanent fixture is to blame."
