Just climbed Jacobs Ladder earlier today and was amazed to see the new bolts that have now been placed. Anyone else climbed the route yet?
Its actually really irritating to see that this is going through.

Cheers

Sheldon

Ha :)

We had a load of fun doing it- although like all trad adventures not without its problems: we rapped in to place the bolts, then continued to a lower stance to legitimately lead the pitch. The ropes didn't run when we tried pulling them, and so I soloed up to the traverse rail, then managed to pull the ropes. The light was failing us, and so I simply tied in there and lead thru for the pictures, with my last genuine pro being the stance just above the bird cave. I can honestly claim to have sport climbed Jacobs Ladder!

The exercise obviously sort to comment on what has been happening over the last year, and the ridiculousness of it all. Lets laugh at our mistakes in life, and not defend them.
