Not trying to get into an ethical battle, just wondering if its common to go sans bolts. Mike Ecker

i've heard you can do it on gear, but based on my vague memory of that pitch, it'd be thin and spaced a bit.

i doubt many folks bother with trying- the ease of the climb with the bolts and the long hike make the idea of lugging a big rack up there less than appealing.

Thanks john! I'm sure I will clip every bolt I see. Then (after dialing it in) if I have the cojones, try it on gear! Mike Ecker
