Bolt removal at Dunira610:06, 20 September 2010

Dunira update

Was at Dunira today. Nice place, worth a visit for the view and a couple of quick routes. I've updated the Wiki updated to record: (1) Estate manager asked us to park further back on the private road, not in the "car park" previously described. Fair enough I suppose, as it is a private road and quite badly potholed. (2) New tracks in forestry, so the old approach description didn't make much sense. A new track gets you much closer to the crag, so less bracken bashing. (3) Bolts still missing from the right hand three routes (ref April 2010 discussion).

Cheers, Jer

Bolt removal at Dunira

Was at Dunira on Sun 4th April and the hangers on: 8. Dun Moan'in. 9. Tullybannocher tea room. 10. Strathearn Shangrila. have all been removed and the bolts hammered in. Why?

That's a shame - I was thinking of a return trip - made a nice wee venue for mixed ability pairs/groups.

Oh dear - interesting that it's the easier routes? I thought we had moved on from this...

The lower off for Dun Moan'in and Strathearn Shangrila is still there and the last hanger on Dun Moan'in is still there. So presumably you trad pro these routes and on Dun Moan'in clip the hanger on the roof then use the artificial lower off. A strange bolt removing head that thought that one through!!

Any more news on this Norman? Situation still the same? Bill

Pathetic. Would the people who do this just go climb some of the trad they dearly love and leave the sports stuff alone. Dinosaurs!

Heard a wee rumour that all the bolts have been cut at Dunira. Anybody know if its true?
