VCC/CliffCare Route Development Moratorium-GNP 31-Oct-2018 At 7:49:50 PM marky
I do believe that what started all this was a spate of new routes put up in an area by new climbers to the scene who thought it was a good idea to squeeze lines of bolts between existing routes in this particular sensitive area. There were also more routes place in this particular area through a blank area/cave that had significant aboriginal importance and was a known “no bolting/climbing zone.
With the rapid increase of new climbers to the scene there seems to be negligence and arrogance when it comes to researching into where to bolt and developing as well as no go zones. A lot of newbies to the scene are “psyched” and want to put up their own new routes/claim to fame and feel they can do as they please, wherever they please.
I’d really hate to see all the work and relationships forged between climbers and Parks Victoria in regards to climbing and development in the Grampians and other areas put in jeopardy due to a small percentage of new climbers to the scene who seem to disregard any ethics and rules/guidelines when it comes to development.
