Sorry Tracey, we have digressed again ...

This bloody carrot argument is like those brumbies. People are attached to them due to history/romanticism. We have let them die at most crags around the country, but continue to wax lyrical about them. If they were any good, climbers in other countries would have taken them up. We would have kept using them at all crags. Even the visual argument is kinda nonsense. How ugly is the stainless one hanging a mile out of the orange rock at the start of Archimedes? A homemade u bolt would be no more visible. The thing that makes bolts less visually intrusive is choice of placement and camouflage. Use internationally accepted best practice bolting. Place discreetly and camouflage. What is so wrong with that?
