From 2010:
One guy said:
B,
Nice route name "Nebulous Squeeze"....will have to keep that one on the back burner.
Thanks!

And then, (thank God!) there's Alexi:
You should. Give them numbers too so you can keep track of how many established lines you've retrobolted and claimed as FAs.
Don't forget to engrave the hardware too...

Do you mean the person that sits at home and is critical of volunteers performing much needed trail work on a heavily used, unmaintained trail, or the person that points out that the original poster is being a dick?

Why don't you go up there and see what was done before offering up your option?

I'd just like to point out a potential danger of stick clipping. I have a 25 ft stick clip, so I can get a high second clip sometimes. Yesterday I clipped the carabiner and pulled down just like normal--successful stick clip, or so I thought. As I was climbing past the second bolt, the quickdraw slid down the rope to my belayer. Now I'm 25 feet off the ground with no protection. Luckily I wasn't flailing, so I just clipped the bolt quickly with a draw off my harness. If the draw hadn't popped off, and I fell going for the runout third bolt, I would have seen a potential of a 40 ft ground fall. My guess is that my quickdraw was resting on top of the bolt and that the nose hadn't gone through the bolt hole. The danger is that you can't see the bolt very well when stick clipping so high. My solution will be to inspect the stick clipped draw/bolt with binoculars before climbing and to also stick clip bolt every bolt going up to the highest bolt I want to clip in case I mess up the top bolt.

In 2006 Nathan Fisher wrote:the missing pin has been fixed with a bolt, after consulting with Gordon Douglas. It is still a runout route, just not a death route. Watch the dihedral swing.

i believe this is the bolt that wanker is referring too, its older than your climbing career.

My knowledge of bolts added to trad line 8 years ago isn't what it used to be...
