Topic - Oi! stop bolting High Tor

simon cox - on 03 Aug 2014
I was dismayed today whilst climbing at High Tor...

A lot of short bolted routes had sprung up on the walls before you get to the main crag but more worryingly there was a newish bolted line to the left of Bastille, as well as Sportlight to the left of Highlight.

I think we need to get the battle lines clear here and recognise that High Tor is a trad crag - it is not acceptable for every last bit of rock not climbed on trad crags is now a target for filler in bolt routes

Pls stay on the numerous limestone crags where bolts are well accepted.

By the way what is the easiest way of removing bolts as when I go to High Tor next I will certainly be chopping the bolt route next to Bastille - an outrage!!

Cheers,

S
