Another fine example of the things that happen when rampant bolt choppers fail to use their words. A little look on thecrag would show that those bolts were in the route One Day Hero. If you thought that they retroed Dr Paul and the Dancing Gnome, you could have talked with the first ascentionist about it. If you look at the topo in Simey's guide, you'll see that it has Dr Paul going up the grey rock to the left. If you think that is incorrect, you could talk with them about it. The bolts were in the orange rock clearly unmarked in the topo.

But whilst you are carrying on like a pork chop, perhaps you'd like to chop the retro put in Underneath the Colours by none other than one of the first ascentionists of Dr Paul?

I climb, and I climb a lot too. But I can also read a guidebook. It appears not everybody else who climbs can. I can also communicate, and it appears you are too far up your self righteous ass to do so yourself. I am sick of people being belligerent wankers about chopping whilst expecting constant consultation about bolting. It works both ways. Just grow up. All of you. Bolters and choppers.
