Umm, it's a bit hard to miss the chalk all over the line, and most likely, bolts and anchors. Abseilers generally avoid aretes, cracks and corners, and like slabs and overhangs, which are the climbs most likely to be bolted. If grumpy bushwalkers can spot chalk and bolts, abseilers haven't got an excuse.
