People have been top roping these little climbs for years. Not that I am opposed to bolting them, they are fun. But... had you considered the local ethics before you bolted them and claimed a first ascent? I am not trying to be disrespectful. I am just a local who in fact learned to climb on these routes, definitely before 2009, and I know I was not the first to do so. Does it count as a FA only if you bolt it?
On a somewhat different note... considering you are developing the areas in Clear Creek County, I would like to get in on the action. I grew up in Georgetown and the Floyd Hill Area and know of some rocks that may be of interest. To my knowledge, I have some FAs around, too, but I haven't posted them. I am selfish and don't want my secret oasis to become popularized. It is inevitable though, so I might as well try and make my mark while I have a chance. Also, the climbing around there is very special to me, as this is where I learned and grew up. I would love to help you further develop the area. Please contact me and let me know if you want some help or a partner in crime.
