Bolting at The Horn, Mount Buffalo 6-Feb-2013 At 8:12:23 AM anthonycuskelly
Well, we're getting somewhere at least (though Andrew, your ideas of what people around here climb seem a bit inflated). A few questions:

- Did you personally place the bolts, or simply add the descriptions to If you didn't place the bolts, do you know who did.

- Were the changes to existing routes discussed with the first ascentionists? If not, why not? Geoff Gledhill (for one) is still climbing around there. Every ethic I'm aware of says not to retrobolt without first discussing with the first ascentionists.

- Are the bolted cracks protectable with gear? If so, what is your reasoning for bolting them? In a 'traditional' area like Buffalo (ie, it's not Nowra), I would consider this unethical.

I'll be up there from Monday for a week...
