Does this mean it's not scary anymore?

No John, that means it was never scary.

Wait...

When I climbed it, I didn't see one shiny bolt. I could pull some bolts out with my fingers at the belays, of which I quickly pushed back in... I can admit it, I was scared. But that is how I roll... scared. And the whole time, I kept telling myself, cowboy up, this is the EASY Fisher Tower!

Seems like this might have changed the personality of the route?
I did it 3 or 4 times between '95 and 2005... on the old gear. It's just the way the Fishers are.

Don't worry about the new gear guys.

Soon it will be all weathered out and shitty.

Remember, the FA had new gear...

Cycle of life.

New gear kicks ass...trust me.

If you want to climb some routes with truly shitty gear, I can set you up.

This is the fixed gear we pulled and replaced on the
colorado ridge. Lots of old star drives, and some
new redundant bolts that were placed without care
or consideration.
