Fixed gear guidelines in the Grampians 11-May-2018 At 3:19:39 PM kieranl
What sort of guidelines might we consider? Here are a few off the top of my head:

- No climbing/bouldering. Obviously applies to no pblic accees areas but also to indigenous cultural sites

- No fixed equipment. No fixed climbing equipment at all including abseil slings. Any fixed equipment will be removed. Parties leaving retreat anchors are responsible for returning and removing this gear.

- No hammered/glued protection. Existing pitons/bolts will be removed

- No new hammered/glued protection. Replacement of unsafe fixed protection (one-for-one or one-for-many) permitted.

- No sport routes. Maximum 2 pieces hammered glued protection/30 metres. Limited abseil anchors for erosion protection.

- Predominately trad. Hand-drilling only?

- Predominately trad ethic. Isolated sport routes tolerated

- No special guidelines

Feel free to tear this list to shreds and reassemble as something better.
