What interests me about this thread is not how hard it is to find a poorly protected moderate route at Arapiles, but that most of the posters are strong, experienced climbers who probably climbed the thing to fill in some time well below their limit and got sufficiently rattled by the experience to remember it amongst all the others they have forgotten. Isn't it great that those sort of climbs exist?

IMHO the route is short, is clearly visible from the ground and has a warning about poor pro in the guide. If you get on it despite that and keep climbing above crap or nonexistent gear and eventually have a mishap then I am sorry but... that's just what can happen when climbing. With a bolt in it people would only remember it as some obscure little thing tucked away next to Glory Rodent and King Rat.
