I noticed someone added a bolt to this one up top… ? and I was stoked to clip the thing the last time I climbed it.

Retro bolt was added on TR and without permission. Should probably be chopped.

Word to that, Pete, but think I have better things to consume my energy down there. Yeah, it kinda pissed me off when I first saw it, but like I said, I clipped it the last time I lead it. It's still full value and quite run out even with this bolt. I guess it's just the principle of the matter that makes me wanna chop it. John and I had a lot of fun putting Arm and Hammer up years ago, and he lead the last 50 feet and placed those last three bolts on stances alone. I bet whoever took it upon themselves to do that thought no one was looking...kinda presumptuous and breaking a cardinal rule in the game! So, go for it if you have time, energy, or inclination. It's the only green hanger on the route.

On TR even!? I wonder what the reason was, the rope was already up.
