Thats crap ODH. Baring the start of Mr J and the venom anchors, tell me some other routes on Taipan that have been retroed in the last 5-10 years?! Most of the stuff ive been on recently still has the original bolts in i'd say!

You can rest easy though... I have spent probably 10-12 days at taipan in the last 6 months and its still quiet most days... Half of those days I would have had the place to myself! :)

Agreed on the Vic Ranges walkins--- NSWhalers have normally carked it by the time they trapse from the tent to the car!
