I had a debate with a friend of mine that placed new/additional bolts on a route we did some 20 years ago in the Superstitions. It was a bold route with potentially huge falls. Of course we did this route when we were both much younger and bolder and dumber than today. I argued that it should remain as is but my buddy's stance was that it needed more bolts because neither of us would be willing to climb it today as it was originally ascended. Needless to say, he won and additional bolts were placed. At least the new bolts were painted pink so future climbers can assess how big of a pu$$y they are.

Should they stay or should they go?

The regular retro bolting that goes on is just too confusing on just what is what. Thank Satan for pink bolts.

I like tacos more and more with each passing year.

Does that count?

I don't think I'm one to weigh in on this, but that is an interesting and unexpected development.

pink Is a nice touch, though.

pinko bolts?

commie bolts?

what next?!?!


tough call on the retro bolting. To say that since you could do it back then but not now to me doesn't justify retro bolting it. IF you said today - we should have added more bolts back when we established it - at least carries some water even if the bag is leaking.

Thumbs up for the pinkos.


But to answer; the title has it right. It depends on how many $$ you have.

Testosterone production declines after the age of 25, or so.I think your willingness (need) to run it out declins in proportion to your testosterone levels.

Ever consider HGH?

Oops, thats another thread . . .

DMT...do you enjoy all the tacos or as you get older you become more wise and know what who is a good "chef" and who would be a bad "cook".

Unacceptable! You did it that way, now everyone else has to do it that way... including you. If the route never gets climbed again, who cares. We MUST uphold our ethics.

Pink bolts... WTF have climbers become.
