Putting aside the fact that Evan can't open his keyboard without taking the piss, allow me to answer this as if it were a serious question. Five bolts is overkill, big Ubolts sticking way out of the rock is overkill in granite. Nobody gets to do this at trad crags. If bolts are actually needed, the smallest appropriate number and style bolts are placed (and preferably camoflaged, so as not to wreck the natures for casual passers by).

I don't chop stupid bolts at trad crags in isolation anymore. Any bolts that I chop from now on will also attract a penalty chop at sport crags. If Fuching idiots make me waste my time chopping their stupid shit, they're going to waste their time replacing sport crag bolts which got pruned.
