I also don't get the whole headpointing thing, and also don't give a toss about a few bolts around the
place to keep crags moderately accessible.

However I can't see why certain crags/climbs that are easily toproped should be bolted at all (even
sparingly) to accommodate climbers preference of a "lead" ascent over a toproped one. And besides,
any route where the bolts are 2.5m or less apart is essentially a toprope with a bit of slack. So why go
to the bother if you can easily chuck a TR down it?
