Cleaning anchors - etiquette 8-Jun-2015 At 9:03:19 PM peteclimbs
In Australia I see most people lowering and I've never really heard people comment on it one way or the other, probably because routes get comparatively little traffic so anchors aren't being hammered too badly.

By contrast, in the US I found that lowering is generally considered poor and routes should be rapped if possible, particularly in areas with lots of traffic and high wear on anchors. Some of the anchor wear at the top of routes in places like Boulder Canyon and Red River Gorge is scary. Plenty of pics on the web if you're curious.
