Comments: If Alf's allegations are true then I am on his side. The guidebook author was completely in the wrong.

Comments: Alf claimed that he chopped routes that he put up after a guidebook came out giving new names to his routes that were slanderous and disrespectful.

Say what you will about Alf but the author of the said guidebook was completely in the wrong.

Hopefully these routes will be retrobolted in the future.

Comments: Nick Stayner - If this route was not safe on gear then yes i would be guilty of 'spraying'.

Fact is this is Montana and if reasonable gear is present then there shouldn't be a bolt. This has been a major facet of Montana climbing ethics since the beginning of climbing in our great state. Certainly these ethics are being more and more ignored as our sport grows in popularity. By no means am I against clipping bolts, just not pointless bolts.

When I first saw this line I didn't understand why ... more >>

Comments: Horse Head Arch in Blodgett. It's definitely been climbed a number of times but the approach is fairly heinous. One could possible approach via the ridge from the Blodgett lookout.

Indeed Blodgett is an incredible place!

Comments: If anyone has any questions about Suesca feel free to message me. I've spent about two months here climbing.

Suesca is an incredible area and most definitely worth a visit!

Comments: certainly an interesting ethical debate. Using natural gear on a sport climb. Yet I agree that there is one placement within the 'somewhat delicate' flake. My apologize for fixing an eyesore but I am by no means the first person to do these lines on gear.

Comments: Linking pitches 1 & 2 is logical and makes for a stellar pitch! Much different than your typical Bitterroot line. The whole thing is stellar especially the fingers on the crux pitch.

Comments: By no means an unreasonable trad line. Gear is good but spaced in a few areas. Fixed a nut at the 3rd bolt.

If on gear a rack to 3" is sufficient

Comments: The 5.7 on this wall is named "Bar Wrench Route" and the 5.9 is "The Ant Route"

Christopher, keep in mind that the goal of Mountain Project is to be a quality climbing route database with relevant descriptions and information.

If you haven't climbed a route simply do not submit it to MP.

Do not make up names for a route - "unknown" is not acceptable either

try to give accurate beta on protection. e.g. how many bolts.

Comments: This is called Flashdance 5.8

Yes there is a decent run out from the last bolt to the chains. A .5 protects this

I do not recall any issues with thin chains

Comments: Here are the correct route names with the correct grades.

The crag is called the "Dance Crag"

The chimney is called 'Bombay Boogie' 5.7

manky unnecessary bolt before entering chimney where finger to hand size cams. For now you can lower off the bolt midway.

The route just to the right with the small roof

Waltz to Hands 5.9

The supposed sketch lay back route is "Bop 'Till You Drop" 5.10. I don't recall any issues with too thin of chains.

The route furthest to the left on the west facing ... more >>

Comments: This route is called 'Bombay Boogie" 5.7 not .10+

I would definitely agree that the grade is consistent with the Bitterroot. You should climb any route before you try to take up space for a route on MP.

\There is a bolt midway which is not needed and the anchors have been chopped. It be great to see some new ones put in

Comments: Yes often times when routes are bolted the difficulty is easier than placing gear because gear can often time occupy crucial holds. Rating off a TR ascent is weak
