A very small percentage of climbers provide you with first ascents ..good or bad ..That is why you can pick and choose a climb of your liking from a guide book and follow these routes they have pioneered.They consider the purist type of climbing is a first ascent, on sight, ground up regardless of grade.A well rounded rock climber should be able to handle any type of rock..again good or bad.These climbers usually find known routes and more so sport climbs not as interesting ,they like NOT knowing what lies ahead, and I guess in the case of the above climb a bit of "because its there". Without them you would have had to stay in the gym or take up golf.

Hey, it's an unclimbed summit! A rare and precious thing in this day and age. And, ya know, if you think this route looks bad, you should see the alternatives on the other sides!

From this perspective, it looks like you have a base camp thousands of meters below the top out!

Virgin, unclimbed summit OR a tombstone. Looks like junk piled upon junk, but different strokes for different folks.
