But have they really spoiled the experience of doing heretic or debutante or hard times or the ascension or any of the classic trad routes? Well, maybe the route right of debutante ds if you really don't want to see token sportish routes. They exist. They have existed for a long time. Suddenly coming along 30 odd years later and saying we'll make a bolt free crag seems kinda silly. Iv had endless arguements about slippery slopes before, but strangely enough, Rosea has not turned into dreamtime wall (which might actually have been a bolt free crag when joe rediscovered it) in the 30 maybe 40 years since the first bolts went in it.
