Drifter, first start by creating threads in the correct place. This is the \"Gear Questions & Reviews\" section. I really don't see where this posting you have made applies. Perhaps we can set up a folder called \"Drivel\" for ALL of your rantings, uninformed posts and inane questions.
Marshall is right, you have to earn respect. I think your whole 'rope bag' saga really got you off on a bad foot with everyone, especially since a R20 rope bag hardly compares to bailing out on a country route in bad weather and leaving a few hundred bucks worth of gear behind...or the two to three pairs of shoes that climbers go through in a year. You get my 'drift'?! skuze the pun.
just a question: what is the point of your argument? You were going on about bolters who don't bolt the brilliant lines that you have spotted, the 15's. Since you are so hung up on grades etc, honestly, how would you be able to even spot a good line? And then let's not forget the \"Bolts on TM\" question you asked. When the answer was 'No, there are none', you replied that you thought that there were. Since you do not climb trad, on what info do you base this assumption then? Especially when an experienced climber like Justin informs you otherwise. Who are you to question him?
Anyway, dude, do some climbing this weekend...and leave your guidebook at home...on Monday I'm sure you can tell all the bolters about the stellar new 15 you spotted on TM...maybe they'll bolt it for you!
