I see at least 3 bolts right next to bomber pro. Ethics aren't what they used to be.

Jon, they're flares. 'Course you wanna try and lead it as a mixed line, nothing is stopping you.

Ah yes, the old "if there's pro you don't have to clip the bolts" argument strikes again. Using this argument has about an 80% chance of invoking a long redundant flame war. I'll see if I can avoid being drawn in.

Ethics? Following this logic, one could argue foregoing gear all together and just free solo all routes. Please explain to me how having bolts on a route is "unethical" when climbing is and means something different for each and every climber?
