catbirdseat Posted November 7, 2007 Author Share Posted November 7, 2007 (edited) Up until this point, I have not been aware of any bolted cracks at Vantage. There are numerous mixed routes, but in general bolts were never placed where there was adequate natural protection. In some cases, the protection came in the form of fixed pins. This represents a change in ethics for the area and should not stand. It may be one route, but it matters because of the precedent it would set. I should add that, per the guidebook, Jim and Marlene are the first ascensionists 1996), but that doesn't give them license to bolt cracks.
