A bolt has been added by the FA team and you really don't need any gear any more.

If one piece of gear on a route is a big thrill to you Wes, you need to stop clipping bolts and dust off yer trad rack!!

So the rumor is true, you have slipped deeply into the dark side. A very dark force must be influencing you these days. I have heard a force from the past has ventured out, maybe he can help you to see the light again.

Geez Obi-won, I had to break out my decoder ring to figure out what you were talking about here.

I have always thought that the "mixed climbs" of Windy Point made it rather unique compared to some to some other areas. I guess people just don't want to carry that rack around if they don't have to. With this particular rock in mind, if bolts are going to be added where gear could go why not add a bolt to Flyways? It doesn't bother me climbing up to it, but whats the difference??

Hey Luke, no one I know has ever used gear on Flyways. Where are people using it? If you are referring to getting to the first bolt then it might not be a bad idea. On the other hand folks can always stick clip that one. Not really the same as Bday girl where the one piece of gear was half way up the climb.

I just meant the adding of bolts in general as you mentioned second. In regards to the stick clip, I don't know of a lot of people toting those around on Lemmon or wanting to fashion one just so they can get up to a bolt. Then again is does make some climbs riff-raff proof.

a 60 m rope is required to belay from the ground...50 m rope you need to use the belay station on slab up small gully.
