    "If people start ripping out bolts it's going to get noticed by the officials who run the public lands." -beef cider well, dont you think the land managers and officials are going to notice when there are stainless steel hangers littered all over the cliff face? I would be willing to bet that land managers would prefer less bolts rather than more bolts (or none at all). It seems that most of us are in agreement though (the rational ones anyways) that there are some routes that can and should be restored. obviously there are some routes that must have bolts to be safely led, but i think the question that must be asked before placing a bolt is, "is this bolt necessary and does it protect the integrity of the route and its moves?" if that question is used as a prerequisite to bolting, i think that bolting would steadily decline. $.02 [ 04-18-2002, 12:55 PM: Message edited by: scott harpell ]

    ps fuck you half pint. if you cant climb a protectable route without bolting it up, top rope it, or climb it when your balls have grown larger than raisins. there is no excuse for bolting a crack....if you cant protect it, someone can, and will....
  22. Canada questions

  23. Restoration

    max- i agree i think tht your proposals are fair for both sides. Very diplomatic. I agree that as a community we ought to agree to some baisic principals regarding bolting and the "first ascentionists' nod" is a great idea.... lets get that poll going....
  24. Restoration

  25. Restoration

    head space- just because you are so pussy you have to clip bolts all day, you dont have to get all jealous. i dont mind the odd sport route here or there...but there is no erason to just bolt up every difficult to protect crack or make a bolt ladder on really easy slab.... no hard feelins man....
