April fools wall was done April 1 2008. Only bolts on it should be the anchor. Just saying as well

I've always liked the sight of mangled bolts and hammered down hangers! While you're at it you should take a loose crap and wipe your ass while slowly rapping down the rock. That'll show 'em! When the brown dookie smear transitions to the blood of your raw ass on the rock, they'll know you are seriously butt hurt!

If you had to place a bolt on a route that already had anchors on it WTF. It's fairly obvious the route has been done before. We did it on gear only. Thus no bolt. I'm not going to waste my time pulling it cause I would rather climb.
Just saying again

A) I dont believe it was Rick or Greg that placed the bolt.


B) The man has done it all..

C) He also did the actual FA of "the perfect lie-back"..

D) He climbs with integrity towards the rock. This i know.

I could never understand how smashed hangers were somehow better than rap installed bolts.

Ron, Didn't he imp-lie that they did the f.a. with only one bolt when they were done? It's funny anyhow just another BITD prodding.

I do believe that was mis-interpreted.. I seriously doubt Rick has placed a bolt in well over a decade. In fact, the last time we went to Dino, he led deadmans rap with nuts,, by -passing the bolts..

Instead of complaining about this sh#t how about some ex. route maint. like that first crux route is cool but the walk off with a foot of snow is lame. seems like these forty foot routes without bolted anchors might actually get done with fixed anchors. most of those routes are sportcracks.

I can only go back to the old saying,, if the route ISNT yours,, DONT alter it.. Its how ive climbed all my time.. If the FA party decided a slung glob of granite was good enough, then i followed suit. Respect to ground already tread. When doing NEW routes, one can install bolt anchors for convenience,, but that is what it is,, convenience..Some thought it would be convenient to have a bolted easy crack at "bandit crag" too..

More like it's 30' and they're never goin back so why waste the time and money.

Were not talking about classics here. I pulled the conveniance slings from the tree on nev/utah and replaced them with painted two bolt anchor is that bad? I'm 99% sure if Dan were around and I asked him he would not have an issue with it.

hmmmm,,, well that is one way to think of it..Not really the correct way though.. We climbed CLEAN BITD.. Bolts werent even a consideration. And we got off all those routes without them.. The mantra back then was: ALWAYS bring a long sling..

always loved the way twenty multi colored slings looked wrapped around some tree. O.k. I put the anchors near nev/utah for a new ten foot arete route. anyone doesn't like them they can rap of the hammered slings that were up there.

EDIT: what about the bolted anchors on hillside strangler and stranglehold? did you use those? you can easilly walk off led zepparete and you don't even need the belay bolt at yer waist

Heh. I do believe somebody took my nice bd double length and replaced it with thier hammered out sling on NV/UT! Or else it got hammered out, lol. I was with the wife and she didn't want to futz around with walk offs when I climbed that rig. Probably that's how convenience anchors started. Yes, honey, I'm coming down now!

Those anchors on Hillside are nice for convenience.

Saving a tree is a good thing for everybody.

Rap bolts anywhere are good for me - I don't like walking ;)

LZA was set up as a sport route,, fully expecting it to be "worked"..Much the same as Lightning dream was. Originally Hillside had no anchors.. Let us not mix the two styles here. In all my routes there i only installed two bolted anchors, the LZA, and cracker cliff. Both atop sport lines. The rest were done with naturals, because they were so abundant.
