Bolts at Buffalo 13-Jan-2019 At 2:32:36 PM JMK
Regarding pulling the bolts on Profanities- either pull them all, including anchors to restore back to the original or leave it as it is. If you selectively choose which bolts to pull you are just comfortising it to your own level. Someone else could choose as their comfort level fewer bolts than you or more bolts than you - it is just a personal choice then. I think if you pull any bolts you must pull them all including the anchors as these are then just comfort bolts. Clearly this is not my preferred choice. While I would not have put the bolts into profanities I did enjoy the nice longish moderate 1 pitch route that they allowed me to do. I would not have done it in its original form. Too bold and/or too much effort to leave an abseil rope with knots.

It has been probably 4 years or more since I last did the route but I do not recall any bolts directly next to a crack. There was that bit where you can go right to the end of P1 but you can stay directly on the arÍte I think. There was also a spot for a smallish cam in the bottom of the chossy flake but I think this may rip the flake? This is all on a fairly distant memory.

My comments are strictly related to the one route - more than happy for the general clean up you are doing.
