I have a lot more issues with dreamtime wall than I have with say, Kieran fixing up some anchors and putting a mixed route in at rosea. I however seem to be alone in my concerns about dreamtime wall and certainly, no one was out there d bating the merits of developing it that way at the time. However, as people are more concerned about rosea, I would expect a more proactive approach should anything be started. Promote guidelines and boundaries. These are things that people can then apply to route development at any crag, rather than just following blanket rules.
