Should you put climbs up for others? 23-Jul-2007 At 9:13:20 PM Take!
This isn't a troll or wind-up but, hypothetically... If you wanted to do a certain climb but weren't happy with the run-out section left by the first acentionist then why not just pre-place a (very very) long sling from the next pro above (if possible) to protect the section of climb that is a problem for you?

Now before you answer, have you ever run up a climb and placed an extended draw on a clip for a short climber who can't clip the, much needed, bolt unless they do a ridiculous move that is harder than the actual grade of the climb?
This may seem trivial but climbing with a 5' friend (at up to grade 23) has shown otherwise.
