Bolt Removal 24-May-2018 At 6:19:28 AM Wendy
This reminds me of a little situation that happened with Greenfingers. It's on old route of Noddy's, had been ignored for 30 years before I went and did it, and Lou and I thought it was pretty goey up the top slab for 13 and would be a more accessible route if there was a bolt in the finish. As Noddy and I are both adults, we had a little chat about it. We both went and redid the route and it turns out that Noddy finishes the route further to the left, where Brown Thumb now finishes, which does have gear and he didn't want a bolt in it. Now, I think my finish is a little different to his finish, and doesn't have gear in it, but the finish of the route isn't clear in the route description. Now his vision has been clarified, but because he didn't want a bolt in it and he had been fabulously mature and sensible about it, I didn't do it. Everyone was happy. How fūcking hard is it?

Talk with people. Clarify stuff that isn't clear. Negotiate. Make compromises. It's all part of getting along and finding workable solutions.

Am I the only person who thinks that anonymous bolt choppers going on rampages is asking for trouble?
