Demand side crag development is utter bullshit. The reasons for there being so few easy sport routes in the Grampians are obvious. Bolting shit lines on shit rock next to gear placements in a national park just because 'the market' demands easy sport routes should be banned. People who want this are not part of my community. We have nothing in common, and one of my aims is to ensure that you don't get what you want.

Fuch Horseshoe Canyon Ranch in Arkansas! We're discussing a nationally significant park which is also a world famous climbing area. Don't bring some dinky little bumbly seppo crag into this. Others may not agree, but I don't give a helicopter shit if you want to grid bolt Werribee Gorge and put up a via ferrata and a flying fox. That is the type of poxy cliff which low grade sport climbers deserve.
