Fixed gear guidelines in the Grampians 22-May-2018 At 3:04:31 PM One Day Hero
I pretty much agree with Wendy on most of this stuff (shocking, I know). Kieran's version is too black and white, although I can see how that might make it easier to digest for non-climber parks types.

To maintain some type of normality, I'll focus on the couple of bits of Wendy's plan which I don't agree with.
- Glue in carrots are fine, user error is the only failure mode seen in the field. No more dangerous than trad gear, super easy to replace without drilling new holes, and much less visually intrusive (for spots where that is a concern).

- The fixed tat on Monkey Puzzle is hilarious. You can back it up by pushing a cam in there if it scares you, and nobody falls getting to the next bolt anyway. If someone breaks it and dies then fuch 'em, shouldn't have been so useless.
