Super stoked for your BigChris. Itís a proud line and youíve done well. Does it need four bolts? Given youíre the only person to have climbed it, Iíll take your word for it. In a perfect world probably not but in our world...

For all those who are happy to bang on about the desecration these bolts represent, youíve had 50+ years to get on it and climb it in a style that you consider worthy; BigBros, sans BigBros; chunks of wood; Bongs; really big soup cans; with pants; sans pants... Lots of people have seen this line and weíre either too scared to try or maybe they just couldnít be bothered. Chris was bothered enough to obsess about it, clean it, work it and send it! He also stood up and and explained why he thought bolts were the better option when he could have bolted it like a cowardly sausage in the night.

MartyM and Jay, you guys are happy to have a casual dig about the number, and placements, of the bolts but have either of you tried it? Once you two go climb it a-la Mark Davies, in the pic of Monarch, then you can pontificate all you like;)
