I have always thought chopping bolts was stupid, especially in the Red.

That said, if any of the Small Walls, or Dip Wall, or Tower get bolted I will chop the fuck out of them.

Word to that.

I'm all for completely bolting a route that takes only one or two pieces of gear. If you don't, some sportclimber idiot who sees a line of bolts is bound to get hurt someday.

I'm also all for adding a bolt or two to runout trad routes. All up to the FA.

That said, current runout trad routes should stay as they are.

And nearly ALL of the hard cracks in Red River were put up by weekend warriors.

You just need to sack up, dude.
