Yet more opinions on Grampians new routes moratori 1-Dec-2018 At 9:32:38 PM Stugang
Iím not based in Melbourne atm and out of the loop. But if it is unthoughtful bolting and bouldering development in sensitive areas that has brought this to a head then it is a fkin joke. As soon as it got close to this routes should have been chopped and brainless developers kneecapped. FFS bolting near aboriginal artwork!!!! Those should have been removed carefully as soon as it happened and whoever did it given a very stern warning not to do that again (I am speaking politely). Honestly anyone that knew about those bolts and didnít agitate for their removal within seconds of finding out about their existence is also culpable in this bullshit situation we have now.

Itís not hard and climbers should not have let it get to the stage of being told what to do. In SA there was an awesome boulder and climbing place being developed in mid to late 90s. The potential is / was amazing with much easier access than other crags in the flinders ranges. When the developers got wind that it was a culturally significant site for the indigenous people a collective decision was made to stop going there and not speak another word of the place. it wasnít an easy decision and not everyone agreed 100% but it was stuck to and guess what the sun still comes up and we all continue to climb in awesome spots (just not that one) but we didnít piss off a bunch of people that have a longer and stronger association with the places we visit than us.
