I'd have replaced those bolts rather than moving them, you now get to breathe bird piss and shit out of the new belay cave. Aug 10, 2017

So replace them, don't move em'. The rock in that cave is as good as any. People have been using those anchors for the past 30 years. Re-bolting is cool, retrobolting is uncool. You want to add bolts or move anchors to existing routes, ya better ask first. Since I don't really mind and it is my route, I'll let them stay. But he should have asked, I'd have probably gave him the bolts.

Unsolicited bolts have a way of disappearing quick in Pine Canyon. A lot more people than you'd think climb out there, and as I've learned in the past, they don't put up with any bullshit. He may be the self proclaimed "Mayor", but he's still subject to the rule of the Gestapo! ;) Aug 13, 2012
