So would I be right in summarising that . . . ?

- Removing dodgey/loose/dangerous holds is OK, but if you alter a route to force a style or grade, that's not cool

- On 18/03/2004 Mighty Mouse wrote: Ben have just said that the climb did not encompass that hold if you want it for 34, then say if you use it you get 32 (or whatever it becomes) -- personally i'm a big fan of Mighty Mouse's idea

- That high profile climbers doing things unethically is bad for the sport

- The achievement of a 34 is still pretty massive, it's just a bummer that it's been spoiled

and as a bit of a sidetrack

- Bolts should protect against ground fall or serious injury, but otherwise a runout is OK without being stupid about it (I know this is still pretty subjective)

Am I on track here?
