Bastion is considered to be a grade 12-17 classic. Why wouldn't they "fill up" on it? Elijah and FotP are about 100m longer and 5 grades harder. Are you saying someone new to bluff mountain would likely get into less trouble on either of these than Bastion? Interesting - why?

But not everyone has the opportunity, or wants to climb this way. They may prefer to extend their boundaries with good partners of similar ability and experience. It's not dumber, just different.
