The middle anchors are an abomination to rock climbing and should be removed. The chains dangling all over the place were bad enough but this is a new breed of retro bolting that has been cropping up at Pilot. Apr 5, 2015

This new breed of crying about making climbs more accessible to a larger group of climbers is also an abomination. Rather than having one single route that a tiny fraction of climbers can do there are now two climbs, a 10c and a 12c. If we are being honest, this "purist" mindset that says trad routes should never be bolted and no one who climbs less than 5.12 should be allowed on specific walls is just selfish talk from people who don't want to see other people on "their" climbs or walls. You can still climb these routes as trad, you can still climb the 12c and just ignore the 10c anchors. Just stop crying about it.
Not trying to be a jerk, just trying to vocalize how many other climbers feel when they read these sorts of comments. Oct 31, 2015

Not a new breed of crying... the new breed is people wanting to make routes more accessible to the masses with zero barrier to entry. Everything is not supposed to be easy and tamed down so that everyone can do it. Climbing is a process that we all go through and there should be routes that inspire people to get better. Your argument insinuates that all routes should have a middle anchor above the easier climbing; is this a new standard that we should put in place on every climb? Did you even think your argument through before presenting it? I Doubt it. Also, trad routes should never be retro-bolted except by FA or on consent of the FA and even then with prudence. Nov 1, 2015

Ton of fun, crux in the middle just before the traverse. Probably my favorite 10 at pilot. Mar 3, 2016
