'To bolt or not to be' - UIAA discussion paper

The UIAA discussion paper 'To bolt or not to be' is available to download from the UIAA site. The paper looks at 'recommendations for redevelopment and first ascents of rock climbing routes in alpine regions'. Some interesting reading about the role of bolts in the mountains, 'Plaisir climbing' - moderate grade sport climbing crags developed in Switzerland for safe 'sport' and some wise words from our very own Ken Wilson.
