This is absurd. A couple of people on an internet forum decide this? And people can't even get some basic facts straight. Neil can count the number of bolts 20 years ago other than abseil anchors on the fingers of one hand? All I can say is that he must have a lot more fingers on his hands than I have. Fixed gear, including bolts, has been part of Rosea climbing since it's inception.

People have generally been sparing with bolts at Rosea and it is hoped that this continues (disclaimer: I have placed 4 bolts at Rosea in the 42 years since I started climbing there). There was an aberration down the lefthand end of the cliff associated with an outdoor adventure group, hopefully never to be repeated

I still have a project or two in mind at Rosea and if they need bolts and they don't intrude on other climbs then I will place them.
