Access: Bollard Replacement

BCC will be replacing a further 7 bollards at KP in the coming months. Spaced from #2 (Web) at the Northern end, all the way to the Nursery Cliffs at the Southern end.

By the very nature of the work, this will mean closing access below the bollard in question and probably 1 or 2 routes either side of it. These rolling shut-downs will only by temporary.

ethic

Climbing at 'KP' has a long, rich history and the cliffs are used by a huge number of climbers of very varied styles and abilities. For these reasons ethics here are complicated. However here are some undisputed points:

  • All top roping should be done through your own quickdraws to minimize wear on the anchors.
  • Don't ever chip holds.
  • Don't paint on any new initials.
  • Retrobolting is acceptable only after consensus is reached with a large cross section of the 'KP' climbing community. New bolts that don't meet this criteria are chopped, often within a few days.

A few years ago there was basically Frog Buttress and Coolum. Since then there has been more development than Barangaroo and South East Queensland should be on any climbers radar no matter what your style. Except ice climbing, definitely no ice climbing. But over 1250 routes with hard sport, multipitches and quality trad to make a great trip.
