/ NEWS: Pat Littlejohn and Tim Neill Strip Bolts out of Gibson Routes
Pat Littlejohn and Tim Neill have been to Craig Arthur on the Clwyd limestone in Wales and removed some recent bolts that affected the classic traditional routes of Manic Mechanic and Friday the Thirteenth.
Pat commented to UKC:
"Craig Arthur is a major crag offering high quality trad climbs as well as sport climbs, which until recently had co-existed pretty well. I hope things can now ‘settle down’ on Nemesis Wall and there will be no further need to remove bolts placed on outstanding trad climbs."
