...and there's your "sport" v's " trad" ethic debate for caving.

Anyway, I would definitely have had already gone climbing at bungonia if some of the easier megaroutes had more bolts. Instead of umming and ahhing about whether I was good enough to get up the damn things, without getting hurt, or having to walk out in shame. But that doesn't mean I want to see more bolts, just that I was a better climber. Or how much would a hammer help?
