Hell, I have to look for the fixed hangers ... especially if they have been camouflaged. Shiny silver anything stands out on orange rock. And stainless carrots are shiny. They are the same metal as stainless hangers. On most rock, I can't see bolts of any sort above about the 3rd. Unless they are currently catching the sun or uncamouflaged on orange rock.
>But I don't know that we want a 2.5m grid of anything do we ?

My point being that a 2.5m grid of anything would look crap. It's not the bolt type that's the issue.
