Did anybody else notice that Honnold is putting in bolts in Yosemite on rappel?

Are you Chicken, or fishy?

I want to see someone put bolts in on lead on Leaning Tower without them being every 4-6 feet.

People who rap bolted Stigmata, after Skinner led it on pre-placed pitons, unavailable for comment.

Wasn't Wheat Thin rap bolted by Jim Bridwell himself?

I seem to remember a lot of debate about rap bolting in yosemite a year or two ago. I don't remember if there was ever a consensus. I thought, though, the idea was to do it on lead or on hooks, but definitely from the bottom , up.

Just a teaser

Who cares?

I'm a huge advocate for do it in the best style possible. If that means you rap in because the wall is so desperate and you want to ensure the bolts are placed in strategic spots and not every 4-6 ft apart that's great. If you want the adventure of a lifetime and sketch out for hours on hooks that's cool too. Just as long as the end product is well thought out, who cares?

At Railay East Beach in Thailand

If you watch the video he placed 8 bolts (+2 for anchors) over an 180ft pitch, I would hardly call that sport or grid bolted. I don't think traditionalists have anything to worry about. Sounds sporty indeed. ;)

At the matching crux

I encourage all the whiners to go tackle the 30-35 foot runouts of 5.13+ and then come back here afterwards to discuss the ethics once they've sent.

Yes little troll, everything that burns your eyes is indeed one big conversation. I will dub this conversation the gear whore's list of superior ethical morality.


Your arguments logical connection, however, is not. These two actions have nothing to do with each other other than they bolt make you pe-pe heated. Try again, eventually you are bound to make a logical connection; even a stopped clock is right twice a day.

Multiple pitches of slab 5.13+. Uh, what's your point.
