Access issues inherited from Long Dong

Being a seaside location, bolts have a reduced longevity. There is an active local climbing community load-testing and removing old bolts deemed unsafe. However, this is an ongoing process done by volunteers and does not guarantee all remaining bolts are safe. To assist climbers, there is a spreadsheet that is updated with testing information and on the dates they were conducted for each Long-Dong route, bolt-type/date information, as well as a 'traffic light' recommendation system as to the confidence in the bolts. While this is an extremely valuable resource, it is not a guarantee and climbers must ultimately take responsibility for their own safety.

Ethic inherited from Long Dong

None to speak of. Some locals stick to a clean ethic, while others go nuts with the power drills. Expect tightly bolted routes (often every 5 feet!), even along lines with plentiful protection.
