Can you be a little more specific about that handful? Because what I call a handful exists merely around debutante ds

Damo, the culprits for the large scale bolting at dreamtime and black Ian's are not natimuk climbers! And I have told both my concerns about that development. I also talk with local people when I think they might be a little in excess. Perhaps if people did more talking like adults and less spitting the dummy and starting bolting wars, we could reach some better self regulation? Reactive responses lead to reactive responses yadda yadda. Talk with people about the concerns with bolting instead. I really don't have a problem with Kieren fixing up some old routes of his at rosea. saying he can't do that because some other person might come and do something with less thought and skill seems kinda silly. Teach the other people to develop judgement and skill instead. Because otherwise, they are going to regardless of a chockstone based moratorium or they'll just do it somewhere else.
