The culprits should be ashamed of this mess. With terrible work like this, it's no wonder that they haven't yet stepped forward to take responsibility.

I assume you're an anti-bolt kinda guy just trolling for a response? So OK, here's a response:
Please point out in this photo, Alan, where you see "perfectly good pro" next to these chopped bolts? It's a blank wall.
The chopping job was unsightly and hurriedly done. I went back months ago and did my best to clean it up.

(I am the man who replaced the bolts after they were chopped years ago. And I'm not ashamed.)

You had to be standing on the ledge to place those bolts above, below and beside the cracks. I like bolts that make sense and these just do not. Grow stronger mentally and try to remember you have better shoes, nutrition, gear and sports physiology on your side. We geezers just had beer, pot and Lycra(hideous). I have no left ACL, torn right rotator cuff, BPPV(Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo), bad eyes and still smoke cigarettes. What's your excuse or explanation?
