Ethic inherited from Killiecrankie

Killiecrankie is predominantly a trad climbing cliff utilizing removable protection and threads as much as possible. Bolts may be placed for anchors when threads are not forthcoming and the route is sufficiently popular to warrant them. Please do not place bolts which are not stainless steel. Whilst there are some excellent sport climbs on the Island already, bolts on routes are to be avoided unless the route is superb and the addition of bolts will not be visually detracting.

The first ascent of naturally protected routes should be done placing the gear on lead. Fixed protection should only be used on sport climbs in preference to placing additional bolts. Retro bolting is strictly frowned upon without consultation.

A significant amount of work has been done by a select group of climbers over the years from Steve Craddock, Iain Sedgman, Gerry Narkowicz, Bob McMahon, Hamish Jackson, Nick Hancock, Simon Bischoff and many others, recording, unearthing and re-recording old climbs and equipping new routes. Some of that information can be found on thesarvo or in the third edition of the Climb Tasmania Guide. Please be respectful of the time they have put in.
