I was just getting something out of my system from 25 years ago.

In 25 years you will probably still be banging on about bolted squeeze jobs at Point Perp (not that I disagree with you).

As for all that other stuff, well I acknowledge change in climbing, so I don't think that I am stuck in the past. Finding that balance though is always going to see some clashes. Conflict however is particularly difficult for sensitive souls like you and I.

I should have taken responsibility for replacing the bolts on my own route. But I will happily complain about a shitty rebolt on other Taipan Wall classics.
