Weird and more than a little contrived, but fck, wot the ell. He is trying something pretty cool. With the removable bolts ( http://www.climbtech.com/products/removable-anchors ) and a light enough drill, ground up onsights on steep limestone are sure to come.

There were two drill holes in very close proximity there. I'm trying to work out whether one was a temporary rivet to hold him while he put the real bolt in, after hammering the hook so it'd stick better. Rap-bolting would probably be less damaging to the rock!

On the other hand, if you can drill from a stance you can clip from it.

A new way to trash the crags with shoddy bolts placed under far too much pressure perhaps?

Even fast forwarded, this really is a pointless video and exercise. I guess when you dispatch 9a's in a couple of goes, you start thinking of ways to make the experience last a little longer?

Not like the wall looks to be impossible to access from the top given its height, so can't think of any other reasons why he would bother with this approach...

still the most boring climbing video I've ever seen. Culturally insensitive to make such a poor quality and dull bum-shot video

As Pete Livesey (the father of modern climbing) once observed, when you climb a new route, you're creating a product, so if you're throwing bolts around in inappropriate places, you're 'product' is tainted.

When putting in a bolt, you are changing the rock forever, so leave your ego at the bottom of the crag and place them sensibly, future generations may thank you.

Doesn't removable bolts mean you also create extra holds for yourself? It looks like you can use the bolt holes as holds too anyway. It seems like another form of chipping. I hope this doesn't catch on.

I think its a sweet way to keep things interesting for yourself and create a 'product' to be remembered. Sure he could prob rap bolt it, climb it a week later, then what? I imagine he's ticked everything else. I imagine 9a lines are few and far between, very fine line between impossible and improbable so good on him for getting imaginative to find new challenges in what could just be more of the mundane...

And how very contrived, im sure there'd be a track to the top of the crag if he just wanted to get up there!!

Turns out he couldn't go and rap bolt it. He explains on planet mountain that it is in a region where top down bolting is not acceptable to the locals.

Don't bother with the film unless you like watching sport climbers fall over and over and over and over....

Here's an interesting read about the history of training for climbing. I agree Pete Livesey was the father of modern climbing, certainly in the UK anyway. However, his statement about tainting routes with bolts is hypocritical of him considering he himself has been accused several times for chipping extras holds onto routes.

Do you want to know who invented the hand jam as well ?

Of course! I know Joe Brown has been credited with it but he himself says it was around for a long time before him

Oh, sorry. Ha! I thought you were going to mention someone else. Have you ever watched Johnny Dawes "Best Forgotten Art"? There's some ultra classic climbing footage from the 40's and 50's
