How classic routes do you know that are chipped/glued? Just curious (and bored).

I know the crux sloper on Meadowlark Lemon in Red Rocks got chipped sometime after the FA. I've seen some people claim ascents recently and I wonder if the grade is changed, although I havn't seen anyone mention the chipping in recent claims of ascents ...

If you count pin scars as chipping then this number will go up into the thousands. Many routes are only "routes" (at least at moderate grades) because of their pin scars.

Example A: Serenity/Sons in Yosemite

Ethics were never invented youth. They live in our soul.

Serenity is an abomination and Sons was aggressive/aid-assisted cleaning & climbing & still one of the most accessible fun-hog routes, & not just anywhere! ______________ In the m)Fo valley!

Classics is relative.  Every area has their own "classics", even 30-foot shit-heaps.

I'm sure I don't know what classic means, but 30-foot shit-heaps . . . .

Does a route being chipped detract from it being classic (maybe just for you)?

Pretty much every 13a and up at Smith. (Excepting the basalt)
