Out of curiosity and not trying to shit stir, if you are going to add fixed gear to a route, wouldn't it be worth doing it with something that's more long term and reliable like a couple bolts? I don't really know anything about the history of the climb, so if pitons are more appropriate somehow, please tell me. It just seems a bit strange to me, especially if you're talking about the risk of people being in over their heads on this climb.
