an unreliable and somewhat rapscallion source agrees that bolts have been chopped.

Norton Summit, in the Adelaide Hills.

Ah wait, thats not banned just yet...
But if a few more dickheads to break the rules again (like on Sunday night) it most likely will be.

Probably the usual stuff - Don't bolt trad lines, Don't steel peoples projects, Keep it a bit real etc . . .

Why bother? You'll probably decide they don't apply to you anyway . . .
Or you'll just ignore them and apply your own rules as you have elsewhere . . .

Copied from the online Norton Summit Guide:

ACCESS CONSIDERATIONS
The Access issue with the Norton summit cliff has been an ongoing one. The mining company which owns the land has allowed climbers access out of their own goodwill. There are however a few conditions which were agreed upon in order for climbers to maintain access. Most of these conditions are simple and straightforward and usually adhered to. The majority of these conditions are written on the sign at the base of the track. PLEASE TAKE THE TIME TO READ THE SIGN if you haven’t done so already.
If climbers do not follow the rules agreed to, the mining company can simply ban us from climbing on their land, no questions asked. It is in our best interests to follow the rules, tread lightly and maintain diplomatic relations with the mining company and the neighbours in the area. It is a privilege for us to be able to climb at Norton Summit, not a right, so let’s do the right thing and maintain access for all climbers. It is really that simple. Here is a brief overview of the conditions for climbing at Norton Summit

•Climbers’ cars must be identified with a CCSA sticker (available at meetings or from president Rob Baker 0439893486 for $5).
•No climbing before sunrise or after sunset.
•Do not litter or leave rubbish (this includes cigarette butts). If you find some rubbish, take it down with you.
•No climbing on the upper cliffs during the peregrine nesting season (1st July - 31st November). Climbing near actual nesting sites is forbidden at all times of the year. ‘Please refer to the detailed topo regarding peregrine nesting sites and avoid these areas. Peregrines are as rare as good steep rock in the Adelaide area - so let’s preserve both. Climbing in the Lower Cave and Hole is allowed all year. Do not enter the quarry under any circumstances.
•No excessive noise or loud music.
•No New bolts are to be added to the cliff (only replacements).
•If planning on climbing on the upper cliffs (i.e. Not the Cave or the Hole), please inform Manfred Heide (83901851)
