First Ascent on Established Routes

Can I still claim a first ascent if I climb, ground up, on an existing climb, remove the old bolts and then install my own? I would like to start a new type of climbing and need to make sure I get the appropriate credit.

Thanks in advances

You sure can... you can claim whatever you want. Just beware of the response of others.

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
