In a quarry, yes, possibly.

Won't the rock simply turn to dust, if you point a drill at it?

Don't be silly. Well, you did ask.

New bolts, retro bolting, or the use of existing bolts?
Bolts to protect climbs or to set up anchors?

What's going on in the South West? Stainless steel lower off at Lower Sharpnose, a thread debating the need for an abseil station on the Dewerstone presumably with fixed gear and now this thread.

I was just wondering, stumbled apon a bolted route on the culm today and was a little taken aback, curious why I had not heard about it previously but it turns out its a know about crag which was bolted a few years back. Too hard for any one operating under about 7c. I was also surprised it was still there after this weather!

Can't speak for 'everyone' but my personal thoughts are 'no'. Why would anyone want to?

Was it lying on the beach?!

In reply to Ffion Blethyn:

Is there more than one?

In reply to Dave Garnett:

No, surprisingly, wouldn't want to fall on the bolts though, as the rock didn't look like high quality culm.

It's on the L wall of a cave near Menachurch Point. Their (the bolts) days are numbered. Thanks to Gareth Palmer who removed the mysterious bolts at Carn Gowla as far as I know these, a few rusting relics on The Haze, also at CG and a micro route or two near Widemouth, are the only bolts in over 100 miles of sea cliff on the N coast.

Thanks, Iain. Good work on the removals.

More than one route, yes. Hopefully fewer than one bolt :+)
