Well, Nobody!, when you get around to climbing them . . . Which often isn't 'easy' ....
How many have you put up? Or which ones have you climbed??

Once something is climbed and gets a grade it is open to people to go ground up and improve FA style. Regardless of whether it was rap inspected, or runout or whatever, they have the benefit of a grade and possibly some other beta (if that's allowable) - the FA simply misses out on the onsight possibility ... sure it's a sacrifice but they take it for the team ...
