To be fair, as long as the route is reasonably straight and not too far over vertical, it's perfectly fine to toprope a full rope length.

I really agree with a large chunk of what Mt Beckworth is saying, despite some mild wackiness. People should at least look at other options prior to developing "model A sport climbing" (bottom belay, loweroff anchor below the cliff top). There probably does need to be community consultation prior to exploring new crags. At the very least, somebody in the climbing community needs to be a point of contact with Parks, have access to the list of significant sites, and be able to veto suggestions of exploring for crags in those areas........obviously climbers would need to contact "the person in the know" prior to wandering out exploring.
