New bolt on Blimp - Bundaleer 7-May-2018 At 2:44:52 PM armstp
I assume that the peg was also the old aid peg, and it wasnít unusual once upon a time for single aid pegs to be left in routes which were primarily free.

I commented earlier about this issue coming up more often in the future. One immediate concern is in relation to Rosea and Bundaleer as I am aware that there are people working on guidebooks to these areas, and some people might see this as a good time to Ďfix upí some of the existing routes. If anyone is thinking that way it would be useful if they would discuss what they might do to classic routes rather than just arbitrarily make a decision that changes the character of the climb or the cliff.

This isnít only in relation to bolt for peg exchanges but includes abseil anchors. It would be a shame for a great adventure cliff like Rosea to go the way of Arapiles with abseil escape anchors 2 or 3 pitches up on multi pitch routes because the rest of the route isnít as good [many routes left of the staircase fit this category, and a number to the right].
