Sport Climbing to be Prohibited in Tasmanian WHA 21-Jan-2015 At 2:20:31 PM shiltz
If their objective is to minimize new tracks into remote cliffs and minimize damage to vegetation around the bases of those cliffs then I can see their logic...
Sport routes take away the need to carry a heavy rack, make the climbing safer/easier, and the net result is generally a whole lot more traffic. What percentage of climbers will regularly walk for an hour or more carrying a full trad rack to climb on a remote cliff where they have to find the route based on a description rather than a line of bolts? And what percentage would prefer to walk less than an hour carrying a sport rack to a cliff that has nice photo topos in a phone App?
OK duckboards have a greater visual impact than bolts but they achieve the purpose of keeping the majority of walking traffic on the track.
