Wow... there are only 4 now, so how many were there, 2? One rope for each bolt! That would be a spicy adventure! Aug 27, 2010
Calling Captain Fingers, in its original FA condition, a "sport route", would stretch the current definition a bit. Let's just say there were considerably fewer bolts on the route then, and falling would have been rather exciting in places... Aug 27, 2010
