I would say no other route in the Valley (maybe Werner knows) has had this scrutiny. Maybe routes in other places. But then again, some of them El Cap routes and their FAists do get sh#t over the style. I think all the enhanced ie: drill holes on top of edges, are total bullshit whoever did them. A few routes are sporting these. Too many holes is always a gripe too.... not enough filled holes is a gripe. Harding took massive sh#t. Bard took sh#t.... nobody *took* a sh#t on them (except for that steamer that landed on Dale that one time in his ledge) but grumbles still continue from their antics up there. Chiseled head guys got tons of sh#t back in the day, huh Duane?? I guess we/us/them just like to fuss over stuff, sometimes for decades. You guys do take the cake though as far as I remember for "most sh#t over the longest period of time"™™™™.
Anyway, I really hope Pete does go up there. It will be like finding Nessie after all these years. Ya kinda know what lurks up there, but it is hard to tell just what it is until you get it in the boat.
