His second sentence backs up his premise?

Anyway, I think it is more than that, so what do you reckon?
A poll on this topic would have been too limiting and is why it is a thread, so go for your life.

Distraction from the more meaningful aspects of life.

Chockstone is for protection ....
If not many on rock when climb, take extra in pockets...
Is also good for make regular....

I have noticed some retro chockstoning of Arapiles classics lately... The decent from Piccolo... I've heard that Claw has one in the wide section now...

Myself and a partner pried the chockstone out of Claw earlier this winter. Not sure if it has been replaced.

Either step up to the plate (as we didn't) or bring a #6 cam (as we did); don't change the climb for others.

Yes. Clearly it needs a bolt placed so it can be protected without changing the climbing.

WTF! You removed the chockstone to justify owning a #6 cam. Seriously, WTF?

Seriously, someone put a chockstone in Claw to make it easier? This climb was done in the sixties and protected with primitive nuts. People really need to learn how to climb.

there's been a chockstone in the bottom of Claw for donkey's years. I'm going up to Claw with my car jack to try and widen the rest of the route. It's all too easy when it's hand sized. Then I'll leave a fixed puffer fish in there for all those people without a 6 camalot.

Wow indeed. If you can't climb a jam crack don't screw it up for everybody else who can.

Oh well, it's probably been a couple of decades since I was on it.
Maybe people would find it less traumatic to do the start of Indoctrination to the bolt then step right into Claw ;)

you should go and revisit it! You could borrow my 6 camalot, but it's actually too wide for that to be a lot of use and you are better placing some micro cams in a break on the left arete. You could borrow my c3s instead.

That bolt on indoctrination is scary! I did the opposite combination when I did indcoctrination :)

I thought you were all talking about Mikl and it was getting both weird and nasty.
