The Viking on the opening crux moves.  Stick clip the first bolt or have good spotters.  Note the angle of the wall in the background.  Red Dwarf 5.12 trad and Viking Soared 5.11 trad climb.

Josh it makes sense to have the bolts closer together right off the deck on routes that have low cruxes. Higher up you can spread them out. These guys know what they are doing. Just observe and learn. Apr 14, 2008

Again, not for removing the bolts just commenting on how close they look...I was not intending to start a removal thread it was more a reference to the changing ways of people putting up new routes. Apr 14, 2008

I'm not for removing the bolts, that generally seems like a worse idea than leaving it. Apr 10, 2008
