Home Forums Bouldering WA Chopping debate Reply To: Chopping debate


If it was a new climb and a single carrot bolt was the protection I think that may be highly scrutinised but if the bolt was originally there from the first ascent a long time a go when this was the standard then I like that little bit of history and if people want to high ball it then go for it and give it a highball grade or just climb it for the pure fun there are lots of climbs around the world with single bolts that people now highball (I remember doing a few in NZ, great fun) and it’s still sometimes fun to climb things in the way it was first climbed. In my opinion it’s nice to have a little tradition to a area that makes it unique.
