Overheard at the crag (although not by me, so artistic license may have been taken):
Leader: Why isn't there a bolt here?
Photog: Why didn't you put one there?

Looks *thin*, I'd like to see the rest of the shots.

Yeah, that's reasonably close to what was said. I must say I was surprised to see that posted, and got a laugh from it. Too funny!

I've only seen/got a few of the pictures, so I'm still waiting to see the rest of the shots myself. Maybe I'll post a couple more at a later date if I can.

In reality, a bolt at the base of the ramp would detract from the route. It's best like it is, as it adds some excitement to the end of the runout.

I had hoped you would find it funny. Like I said, I heard it second hand, but I can hear KP's response like I was there. Nice to see you cleaning the dust off of all the hard classics up there.
