The big difference is that you've climbed the WG climbs (many times) before, I assume you haven't climbed Profanities? Despite all these posts no one yet has gone out climbed the climbs and reported back with facts. If this was retro-ed by someone in the club I doubt there would be the outrage.

While you're there, is the bolting of Profanities (a climb nobody climbs) inline with say the bolting of Big Fun (a climb everyone does)?

And my 2 cents on the Pintle LHV, only climbed it once (before the bolt) had read/heard it was run out but found it fine. But again no one has bothered to go up there and place the gear and report back with facts.

This thread does nothing to encourage bolters to come forward and justify there actions or discuss their future intentions.
