    I watched this with great interest, very epic. Wouldn’t you want the dude who put the “clip on” holds in, to represent you? I’m only basing this on common sense - someone must have gone up there first to put those clips in place, or have I totally got that wrong?

    That would be a no. The bolting debate is a big bone of contention amongst the climbing community. To bolt or not to bolt.

    I am a trad (traditional) climber. We place our own protection; nuts, like my avatar, cams and hexes, to clip into as we climb. These are then 'cleaned' by your belayer, as they climb, while you belay them from above.

    Any bozo with a hammer drill can bolt a sport climbing route. They just rappel in from above, drill a hole, put in a bolt, and tighten.

    There are a myriad of factors that go into placing good protection, both trad and sport, which I won't go into now.

    Sadly, great climbs that can be climbed all on trad gear, are sometimes bolted, ruining a pristine geological feature unnecessarily.

    There are a number of talented sport route setters, Rich Heap and Zac Vertrees among them, but for every good one there are a hundred yee-har Bob's who don't have a clue what they are doing.

    Would you trust your life to random, fixed protection, put in who knows when, by who, and how? I don't. When I place my pro, I know if it's bombproof, or shit.

    To show this is not a thread derail, the above is all about safety kiddies. Protect your self on our fine forum with a good adblocker, and VPN.

    or it means the aforementioned admin is hunting for more "acceptable" interstitial ads on his website that may seem less intrusive so he can continue to try and make money from site traffic ?

    who knows... there have been 2 database problems in as many weeks that seem to have been um err.. fixed... with nary a comment ...

    but the bitcoin data mining was snipped off... so maybe a hint was taken !

    edit... I am worried about da rooster...... his dangly bits...

    *Clueless....

    So what now?
    “But I don’t want to go among mad people," Alice remarked.
    "Oh, you can’t help that," said the Cat: "we’re all mad here. I’m mad. You’re mad."
    "How do you know I’m mad?" said Alice.
    "You must be," said the Cat, "or you wouldn’t have come here.”
