Yet more opinions on Grampians new routes moratori 3-Dec-2018 At 10:44:40 AM gordoste
Agree with you Stugang. My mind was not made up on this until I found out (courtesy of a terrific Vertical Life piece) that a bolt was placed within 1 metre of an art work. The bottom line is that climbers have behaved atrociously and other climbers have not corrected them. Anyone who knew about those bolts needs to take a good hard look in the mirror. Would we have happily stood by if someone bolted the Bard traverse? It's time to admit our mistakes and ask what we can do to regain the trust that we have abused.

Up until now, the most vocal folks who are active in the area seem to have been focussed on finding flaws in the way others are trying to clean up the mess. Hopefully this is just because (like me) they were unaware of all of the facts. We need leaders in the Grampians climbing community (i.e. the people that really count, not inter-state nobodies) speaking up (preferably in public) to deliver a clear message that they find the past behaviours totally unacceptable.
