Egg Rock, Gembrook 3-Jan-2022 At 6:49:32 PM dalai
1. I knew Mr Wells was trolling as that is his MO.

2. I was going to initially reply that Egg rock was a bolt free crag, but reread the guide this morning as I hadn't been out there after my first and only visit ~30 years ago and there is mention of a chain anchor at the top of one boulder now. So in fact not a bolt free crag though deserves to be.

Comment wasn't not to bolt because it isn't a popular area, rather not to bolt because it isn't necessary for this line in question and from memory don't recall anything there worth being bolted. Going on the lack of bolts others who did the FA's there agree with that analysis.

If there were quality lines that needed equipping to lead then there might be an ethical dilemma. Moot point as I only remember esoteric choss... As predominantly a pebble wrestler for a few decades now, it would have to be super quality for me to dust off the harness and get my Ryobi petrol drill out of the shed!

Happy enough to just set up topropes if I were to go back there but don't plan on it anyway. Better stuff closer to home. Nice troll BTW.

That said reality is not everything or everywhere needs to be bolted. In fact I have been questioning myself much more these days about bolting lines and am currently more focused on replacing my bolts from 30 years ago than adding new ones. Especially all my hand drilled carrots!
