ta....I hadn't realised anybody else would bother going there. A nice blog post by David Noble:

"Sports climbing involves the placement of ring bolts into the rock and this has caused some controversy. The arch itself is an interesting geomorphic feature and I think its a shame to see bolts in it. But it is not unique there are plenty of arches in the sandstone country of the Greater Blue Mountains, nor is it in a remote place. But it is in Blue Mountains National Park and perhaps the land managers need to consider this issue?"
