While this thread has starting going a bit downhill, is has contained moments of intellectual brilliance; and is required reading for any climbers remotely interested in style (although I appreciate that many are not).

I like what people have said about Malcolm's style, I appreciate that CJ's probably right in that top-roping through a crux sequence with preplaced wires on a crack climb (irrespective of grade) and claiming an FA is a no-no.

And that in general, pre-placing gear on a FA is not in good style (I'm guilty of the odd wire in an FA, but thinking about it, would totally try to avoid it). Although I agree with Simon; that top-roping is just as bad...

If all else fails, and style goes out the window (as it does, sometimes); keep it honest by writing good descriptions of climbs, and the style of the ascent or FA.
