Hey Bob, I knew you would take that bait.
Damit Prod I thought you might scare him away.

Now Bob tell us all about the routes done there ground up?
Tell us about all those bold climbs on lead placing bolts by hand.
Remember this guy?




Drill baby drill!

Eric...I bolted another one of your "bold" top rope routes in the Canyon today.


But then again it was 10- so it had to be some one else who did it.

Why do you care? You couldn't get up them no matter how the bolts were placed.

Bolting Bob, just because you spray the most, doesn't mean you know the most.

Now when are you coming to FL to go fishing and bird watching?

What is your point Goat? Or don't have one and you are just another never-was bumbler pining for the good old days when 5.11 was somehow harder because it was done in lycra?

He doesn't have one...got some weird shit/fixation with me and the routes that I have done.


The really strange part is that he keep asking about what bold ground up routes others have done when he has a big goose egg when it come to the amount he has done.

These wanna-be-tradsters are really warped in the head...expecting others to do what they can't.

If this route was originally put up in the manner that folks are saying it was, it introduces way too many grey areas for me to really get excited and argue about. But I will say what I always say when people are arguing about bolting:

By far, for me, the most interesting thing I can do when climbing is to approach a route that has been un-altered by humans, climb it from bottom to top with just what myself and my partner can carry, and walk away from it with everything we brought, leaving it still unaltered by humans. I hope the folks that don't share this sentiment will think about it, and maybe, one day, share it.

It should be noted that I am happy to clip bolts sometimes, and I'm happy that sport climbing exists, but climbing on real rock without someone's pre-installed infrastructure is so much more satisfying.

AND I THOUGHT RETROBOLTING WAS TALKING ABOUT REPLACING OLD ORIGINAL BOLTS THAT WERE NOT STAINLESS AND/OR WERE POORLY(BADLY?) SET.
I HAVE CHOPPED/REMOVED ONE PAIR OF OLD VERY BAD-DEADLY-PLACEMENT BOLTS. WITHOUT RESETTING NEW ONES. A VERY MUCH UNUSED ROUTE. ABOUT 20 YRS. AGO

^^^

Retro-bolting = adding bolts that were not there when the route was FA'd.

Re-bolting = replacing/upgrading existing bolts.

Patrick, I don't care either way, I only did a half dozen routes up there, a few were bold and a couple were top ropes. No big deal either way although a bunch of us are laughing at the new guidebook and the half ass way it was thrown together without any input from the guidebook at Neptunes.
Just a copy and past from the Mountain Project database.

They don't call him Ground Up Bob or Bold Bob, it's Bolting Bob for a reason, and it's just fun to sit back and laugh as he fights the reputation.

Settle down Bob and accept your fate as an overbolting, rapbolting, and retrobolting machine.
When is your next guidebook coming out?

The fat man doesn't care but continues to arm chair quarteback and mouth off.

Coming from a overweight top roper who can't lead a sport or trad 5.9.

Funny stuff indeed.


Eric...have you led Scary Canary, Jules Verne, Blue Power or Wendego...to name a few?

Yes or no?

Yes when I was young and dumb.
Haven't done Blue Power or Wendego. does that mean I'm not to allowed to have an opinion on your plagiarism?

Your hen picking is hilarious.

Have you ever had unprotected sex in Camp Slime or Camp Four?
Have you ever been a bike messenger in NYC or skied a CO 14er....?
Whats your record on the Long Peak Tri?

You are a liar. Plain and simple. Now you are old, dumb and liar.

Having an opinion is one thing...being a liar is another. Fecking armchair climber and now a couch potato guide book critic...doesn't get much funnier.

So sorry that your historical top rope ascents didn't get into the book...Boulder Canyon history is so incomplete now.

Eric: Last I saw you, you were hanging and moaning on 5.8 in the Voo, ON TOPROPE. That's sweet action that you lead those Eldo scarefests...unless of course you're full of sh#t. Hmm, what are the chances...5.8 flailer is ex-hardman, or 5.8 flailer is lying?

Who knew that being Roy's rack caddy would turn you into such a stud? It's like NPR, I learn something new everyday.

Elcap...I watched Eric whine like a six year old on a 5.7 slab...amazing to see his rapid fall from a 5.12 eldo hardman to to his current state.


I almost feel sorry for the guy...almost being the key word.

For what it's worth Bob, I like the guides that you put out. Climbing and Mt Biking. But I also like Goatboy so my opinion might be scued....

Cheers,

Everybody changes, sorry for the whole sport actually, I'm just trying to let the masses know some guidebook authors are talking out their ass while blowing off first ascents.

Do you want me to post up your toprope in Vedauwoo screaming like a little boy Will or Prod?

We all have our down times but those that spray about their accomplishments while diminishing other seems half ass.

Again not a big deal, just pointing out idiosyncrasies that climbers take this sport so seriously to denigrate others accomplishments compared to other sports. W

Will, I'l try to upgrade my 8anu card for you, stay tuned,

Remind us again why we should care?

Well, we've never been to Vedauwoo together Goat, so stop throwing rocks in my direction.
