So I climbed this route in 2010 prior to the rock fall. I want to go back and do the route again in a day. I think this would be a really cool route to do in a day but I have heard a few things about the how the route was re-established after the big rock fall. I was told that a "knot toss" is now the way to go. Taking a piece of rope with a knot and throwing it into a crack and then ascending the rope. I was wondering what people think of this. My first thoughts are that I don't like that this is the new way to do it. I was told it was done this way to "keep the gumbies away". Personally if I was the one to re-establish the route I would have done it more traditionally with either hooking if possible, bolts, rivets, or a pendulum.
The person that told me about the knot toss said it was awesome and I am open minded but I still don't like the idea. What do you all think and has anyone done it?
If you care about "traditionally" the old dads did whatever worked in aid/bigwall climbing that was within their ethics. There's absolutely nothing untraditional about a knot toss (or hook toss or nut toss etc) compared to hooking, penduluming, etc.
