Anyone know the condition of the bolts?

Thanks.

Hi Riaan
We were there about 5 years ago and there were no issues with the bolts. It's easy to scramble to the top of the crag and set up backup anchors if the condition of the bolts has deteriorated, however, I doubt it, because it's a very dry area.
My memory might fail me here, but I think most of the routes should be trad-able as well.
Lovely area, and the silence is deafening!
Enjoy!

Be sure to phone before you go. I believe that the place is under new management (and may not allow day visitors - unless you are staying there).
