    Bolts on Broad Stand

    I have been asked in my official capacity if BG contenders/support parties are responsible for the recent appearance of bolts on Broad Stand.

    Does anyone know anything about this?

    I can see no reason for this at all. I can't imagine any climber doing it either.

    I don't Ian.

    I was contacted by Stephen Reid at Needle Sports who is one of the FRCC guide book editors who simply asked if I knew if a BG party was responsible.

    I'll happily PM you his contract details so you can have a word direct if you want.

    I mentioned I was stsrting a thread to see if I could get any info, so he might appear in person.

    Its damage to a natural feature.

    You have to drill a hole in the rock to fit the bolt.

    It then encourages people who should not be there to attempt, they get scared and then want even better protection, before you know it you have a ladder there instead.

    Its a very selfish act.
