I am learning to climb trad and was just curious, if I practice placing gear on sport routes between bolts, does it still count as redpoint if I send?

Aint nothin like a chihuahua with a backpack. Someone's got to carry the beer

If you climbed it without weighting the rope it is a redpoint

I'm going to hazard a guess that over 70% of sport routes in the US have at least one place on them to place gear that would hold a fall.

Is this question for real?

If you drive 65mph in a 55mph zone is it speeding?

If it is on a Tuesday and you scratch your left ear before you place the gear, then yes, it is a redpoint. On all other days you have to just have to place all the gear with your left hand and bark like a dog at the end of each pitch.

I hope not because sometimes that's the only way I get propelled up routes.

You guys are funny. If you're leading, and don't fall or use the rope or pull on the gear, of course it's a red point. But if you've already placed the pro and are just clipping it on the way up, it's a pink point. And if you use a knee bar rest anywhere on the route, it's a magenta point. And if you think my response is lame, that's a valid point.

I think placing gear on sport routes is a great idea if you're trying to learn trad. But that's beside the point.

It's not a redpoint unless you write a letter to the route opener and give him the chance to explain why he didn't put the bolts where you wanted them.

Also, in many areas where there is still or used to be some bolting ethic, only the parts of the route that aren't protectable by trad gear have been bolted so they are supposed to combine bolts and pro.

so relieved that the senate passed the new bill on sweeping redpoint reform. hopefully the house republicans are courageous enough to put politics aside and push it through.
