Well I guess it's horses for courses but personally I find bolted cracks aesthetically ugly. They climb weird too. It feels like gym climbing - like you are training for climbing a proper crack without having to worry overly about consequence or developing the skills necessary to climb a crack ground up.

I am sure everyone that has participated in this thread is aware that when the rock is good at the Point it is bloody amazing and the gear (typically cams in breaks) is bloody easy to place. To me it makes no sense to place bolts next to good placements. I have no problem with mixed climbing and don't feel the need to explain to Brits why we place bolts in blank sections or explain to Euros why we don't bolt cracks.
