I actually think the only time bolts should be chopped is if the bolts in question have been complained about - for example if they are visible from major tourist hiking tracks or are in aboriginal caves (Black Ians). Sandinista Wall is one area I think is a contender due to it being a popular spot for tourists to stop and rest.

Fortress - I don't have my guides with me - but isn't there some bolts on the hard Carrigan/Shepherd wall routes left of Passport?

I believe the sport route done by Nick Hanc--k is somewhere on the cliffline where the upper access tracks walk below - so could be visible to tourists and rangers easily. But I haven't seen it myself. Bolts could be rust stains by now - and entirely invisible.
