Topic - Bolt on Dawn Chorus, Mowing Word, Pembroke

saintlade - on 28 Sep 2009
Was out on Mowing Word on Sunday doing a few routes and was surprised to discover a bolt on the hallowed Pembroke limestone. The bolt is on Dawn Chorus, just to the right of New Morning near it's finish. It says in the CC guide that Dawn Chorus has been climbed without the bolt runner since the first ascensionist so why has the bolt managed to survive this long without someone giving it the the chop? The widely supported ethic is that Pembroke is bolt free, and from recent discussion that it's moving towards peg free.

Was just wondering how a bolt has managed to survive on such a relatively easily accessible bit of cliff? Thought some die hard anti bolt type would have seen to it by now.
