While climbing on Isles in the Sky a few days ago I noticed a ton of chopped bolts around bird of fire, but really all over the wall, anybody know what the history of that is? The spacing makes it look like there used to be bolt ladders on parts of the wall.
Yes, there were several bolt ladders in the area which were chopped. Years later some of the bolts were replaced for free-climbing and later still some of those replaced bolts were chopped. When there it's best to look out across at the desert and enjoy the view!
