New anchors at Araps - What do you reckon? 8-Jan-2017 At 10:10:25 PM patto
It all sounds like a slippery slope to having every second pitch with bolted anchors. That isn't the Arapiles that I know and love.

Sure if I was climbing Mari tomorrow new lower offs would make things just that little bit more convenient. So I'll use them..... But while we are at it, setting up natural anchors on top of the Plaque wall has become a pain.... Give those beginner climbers some nice big bolts there too.

Sarcasm aside, I think Arapiles currently has an excellent balance of bolts and any further bolting should only happen with careful consideration and consultation.

I laugh at places like Yosemite where they'll happily have bolted belays on every pitch next to good gear but the rappel routes on very popular climbs are off tiny near dead trees with a bunch of tatt.
