Hi, I am local to Narrabri.... I dont want this bolting argument to get out of hand, In fact I'd like to climb with some of you Kap. climbers. IMO bad bolting is bolting that lessens the safety of the climb e.g. bolting small unfused blocks. I believe on a new route that is promoted for others to climb, ideally it should be equipped for the "beginner" leading at his/her peak. If this means placing a bolt where there is a gear placement for the experienced climber than so be it.
I want climbing to grow as a recreation. knowing that Kap. would not be easy access for emergency services I'll take the cautious view. That is if its unsafe cut it out, tho dont cut bolts just to maintain a preferred style of climbing.
