Topic - 17 new bolts on Grandes Jorasses

Jon Bracey - on 07 Oct 2013
Guides from Courmayeur have added 17 new bolts to Pointe Young on the Grandes Jorasses, see here:

For me the Grandes Jorasses represents one of the last bastions of adventure climbing in the Mont Blanc massif. I personally find these new bolts completely unneccesary.
As far as I'm aware there does not appear to be a recognised and agreed policy for bolting practice in the Mont Blanc massif, but I think it time for discussion before it's too late.
