Please be advised that bolts have been placed without prior consent in the Happy Valley area. The placements of these bolts (six currently) are dangerous and deemed an act of vandalism. It is suspected that these bolts are not suitable for use in sandstone and are prone to failure, as they may be too short for modern sandstone bolting methods and not backed up. Please do not use until further assesments have been made.

If anyone has any information as to who has placed these bolts, please contact us on Facebook or email the BMC

It is not unheard of that crags in the southeast have been banned in the past and we need to ensure relations with land owners are positively maintained.
