Zig Zag, Mt. Erie, Pitch 2 retrobolted in Climber's Board Posted Wednesday at 12:34 AM These are 3 brand new bolts between the 1st pitch anchors and 2nd pitch anchors on Snag ledge, where previously there were no bolts. There are other recent squeeze jobs at Erie (at powerline wall for example) that merit a sad head shake but don't rise to the level of "WTF?!" I was on the main wall last week and didn't realize they are actually 1/2 inch bolts and too big for the wrench on the metolius nut tool. These bolts change the character of a classic "learning" route by drawing a line up that section of rock rather than following one's nose on lead. I've climbed this route with lots of folks breaking into trad climbing and it really should remain a "traditional" route. I'd seen about the Boat Launch wall and Sisters range, these ill-conceived bolts seem like a trend and its not one I want to see. I'm all for bolts where they make sense, this just shouldn't be one of those places.
