Nice work Mark!! (Easier than Red Dwarf, don't you think??)

So, do we chop or let the trad world and sport world co-exist??

When I led this on gear I never once even looked at, or considered, the bolts that were there. I was doing it on gear and focused on the moves and plugging the gear.

Love to hear what other who have led this on gear have to say about it. Mar 31, 2010

nice mark!

hey jim-

i'm leaning toward removal of the bolts. i feel this way because the gear is good and there are far fewer 12- trad lines on mount lemmon than 12- sport lines.

that being said, if the bolts were left in, maybe this climb could serve as a training route for people wanting to break into harder trad. this way, if someone was unsure of a placement, he or she could back it up by clipping a bolt. Apr 1, 2010

Geir,

I'm tempted to leave the bolts because it's a good warmup for Northern Tights.

I really don't care one way or the other however. Apr 1, 2010
