It's a 13m 13 FFS. What is so terrible about making a 13 that probably hadn't had a 2nd ascent until I unearthed it into a better lead for grade 13 climbers? Like when Simey added the bolt to Bygone. Bolts aren't just for hard climbers you know. But because I can actually communicate and Noddy is also a reasonable person who can communicate, we discussed it and it was important enough to him that I let it be. I had actually discussed it with a bunch of other climbers who were all for adding a bolt as well. But we went with Noddy's preference.

Discussion. It's the kind of important point I'm getting to here. Bolters need to do it. Choppers need to do it. Being gung ho wankers about chopping doesn't actually help. But I guess it makes you all feel like your dicks are bigger than they actually are.
