One thing that never fails to amaze me is the amount of bolts and glue (and money) some people have put into the cliffs. Possibly hundreds of thousands of dollars I would think, in some fringe cases... 2000+ routes x 10 bolts each + glue.... It's got to be prodigious.

So while I agree it would cost some money to keep playing the game, some people seem to be able to add bolts week in week out to cliffs in one location or another.

Anyhow, time will tell. I'm sure by the time i'm 90 we'll have a good idea one way or another - presuming I am lucid enough to care ;) Either way - bolting or chopping - it's a lot of effort for no direct personal benefit, all things considered (ok I guess this is arguable if you consider ego boosts to be beneficial in the scheme of things).
