The Eyrie, Mt Boyce retrobolted! Badly... 31-Dec-2016 At 8:17:03 AM rodw
Sorry Tim I'm with WWS on this one re it being not needed..all your points are essentially invalid as like WWS says..just go for a walk and you can find a easy new mutli, no need to retro stuff that has a very established history.

Note Im all for well bolted easy to moderate routes if new ones...but plenty around without dumbing down existing lines that really have been climbed okay for ages...not everything has to be 100% safe or need to be "popular".

If your going to re-bolt stuff without consultation expect this type of feedback, doing it and expecting a reasonable response when you didn't even bother discussing said action in the first place seem a bit naive at best or arrogant at worse.

Stick to either just replacing bolt for bolt or be prepared to suffer months of consultation with community, then make an informed decision and do the needful..mind you no mater what you do someone will be pissed off..but at least you jumped through the right hoops and have some morale high ground to argue the moment you have none.

Better yet just bolt new stuff at new areas, you still get some negative feedback but really no one will care enough to start chopping.
