retired Posted October 19, 2005 Share Posted October 19, 2005 Yeah Joseph I 've been leaving traces for a long time and my protection bolts placed number in high hundreds, but I've never placed one where any kind of natural pro could be used and the majority have been hand drilled on lead, (I have crossed over to the dark side in my old age however)I've tried to always ask myself if a route really needed to go where I envisioned and changed my m.o. from putting up death runouts to putting up routes where a competent climber won't die on a bad day I do disagree and think folks get way to serious about little issues involving climbing, there are true problems in the world, a few extra bolts on Steins Pillar isn't one of them. Waren Harding was always a bigger hero to me than Robbins. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
