You read the thread,
you've watched the movie,
you're wearing the t-shirt....

Time to Vote....

Should the 2 bolts be ripped from the 3rd pitch beley of the climb - Dribble ** 11 (Tiger Wall.)

I've decided after re-reading this to change my view....

I was in favour of the bolt but after carefull consideration of all the facts presenting by all parties i've decided that...

I don't care....

This topic is truely dribble in every sense of the word....

I don't care either. I am just amazed that a route that was left lying in obscurity for decades is now the subject of such passionate debate on the internet.

its an 11? wow. those bolts surely present a trip hazard with the likely angle of the climb, so long as they are in fluro colours for safteys sake then they should stay, other wise rip em out.

I really couldn't care.

There is no loose rock at the belay ledge, it is not a safety issue.

It should read "Leave them in it is more convenient".

That pitch is a 10. It's not the loose rock that is an issue -it's that novice climbers may run out of gear - in fact not... may run out of gear! but WILL run out of gear. (there's your capital letters!) Either put...

You know what I've just read the route description - it is warned to a point... so I don't know. I think we should invent camouflage bolts.

thanks to Simey for tiding up the route anyway. x

more like it should read "if you have read this thread and others related and still care: f--- off stupid wanker"

Thats a bit of an offensive statement. I would humbly submit that you did in fact read the thread and did care enough to post a comment......

I'm voting bored, and I'm on a ship that's broken down in the middle of the atlantic, with a bunch of folk who don't speak my language very well.

i'm for removal if it involves running a long line down to the field with a whole lot of pulleys & attaching it to a donkey.

.. the real question, is how far would a 0.5 horse-power donkey have to walk to pull out the bolt, if it walks at 3 feet per second and it takes a 30kN force for 5 seconds to pull out the bolt?

How much will the line stretch?

depends how clever you are.. i don't know how to handle that. use a magic non-stretching line if you want. double points if you can do it using climbing ropes.
