Foul, double-frankly!

Is the miraculously unearthed 13m gr13 any good? Tell me it's a 2 star route, and I might see why a retrobolt could be justified. Maybe Simey could chime in and tell us how many 2 and 3 star routes have been added at Araps in the last decade? Cause it sure looks like a bunch of desperate starving vultures picking through the carcass of a climbed out crag.

For example; why is Coming on Chris Direct a thing? That was probably the most egregious one I saw this time. Oh, you know what Araps really needs? A fuching contrived, single bodylength, bolted gr21 finish to a popular trad gr16!?!? Why? If you're so bored with the 1000 good routes at Araps that bolting that pox seemed like a good idea, then it's time to move. Go live in the Bluies. There's a lifetime of contrived, ringbolted shit up there now. Just go and climb the existing turd instead of bringing little chunks of it to the best trad crag in the country.
