Have the bolts at the top of the climbs been replaced or have they just been painted to protect from further deterioration? They looked different when we were there this evening. The bolts on the climbs look great but I've always been in two minds as to how safe the ones at the top are - what do others think?

Just sat at Dunbar Crag now about to go play around on the harder routes, but I'm wondering who the project belongs, if anyone? Also the rock here is gorgeous!! Any reason more routes haven't been bolted/put up? And is the gorgeous red streak of rock 10m east a boulder problem? Because if not, it really should be!!

I've been told that some of the bolts are looking pretty loose. This treu? thanks

I've noticed new bolts at left side of crag & a blank space for 4 or 5 routes to the right. Who is equipping this and is the space up for grabs?
