Gah - so many bolts!

Different areas, different ethics.

Having climbed several of the routes within the film, most would be drastically different propositions without bolts (i.e. insanely bold and/or completely unprotected) and even with the bolts still feel wild due to their position.

Don't get me wrong, in the UK I'm all about keeping trad climbs traditional and sport climbs sporty, but out in Australia/Tasmania things are different - hybrids are much more common, as are bolted lower-offs/abseil stations. As such, it's best just to get into the holiday vibe...or go somewhere else...
