When rebolting with George Urioste previously, he gave me permission to use my judgement with removing a bolt here or there if it wasn't needed. This is the original bolt on the first pitch of Spare Rib, and as you can see, modern smaller cams protect this just fine (any brand would work). We removed this bolt.

Greg, I am glad to see that you are not replacing every old bolt, when there is good gear. On my last trip to Red Rocks, I ran across a number of replacement bolts near bomber gear. Thanks for all the hard work... Dec 22, 2006
