Well that route has an interesting history... my understanding is that Moorhead bolted Ride Like the Wind with its spaced bolts and then offered it to Mike Graham who led it without pre-inspection. Maybe if someone else had bolted Alive in a Bitter Sea and then said 'Hey Warwick, I have a new route for you to do' and Warwick led it without pre-inspection then I would be less critical.

I tend to agree with you. I suspect also that a lot of rap bolted routes established before the advent of power drills had spaced bolts to minimise the tedious work of hand drilling.
