Self regulation isnít working?

Those doing the bolting probably donít know that this is supposed to happen as far as pv is concerned, nor do they care anyway because other climbers that may be concerned for the most part only bleat about their open slather approach after the event, and so far pv hasnít made an example of any offender.

Most other climbers are complicit by either their silence or approval, so then the bolters continue to be emboldened due not having any real negative reaction to their actions.

A twelve month ban of new bolting above 500 metres while the issue is discussed?
What a joke!
Do you seriously reckon that the majority of those doing the bolting will care about that?
Until there is real consequence for their action they will continue. Unfortunately the silent or apathetic majority will suffer the consequence if ever the dinosaur of authority awakens from slumber.

Even if an agreement is reached after such moratorium and discussions, bolters are still going to bolt.

ODH has put forward the only real solution over on the other thread. I will call it his vp solution as it will only take one vindictive pr-, err person to chop not only the offending bolts but also others placed by the offender to set an example of real consequence that canít be ignored, otherwise we are just bleating and will continue to be raped by those with velcro gloves and a why-not attitude.
