Joshua tree, Buttermilks, Hueco, Pway, smuggs, etc all have, boulders, trad and bolts. So no, just like we don't have onlyl bolted cliffs or TR only cliffs around here we shouldn't have bouldering only areas. I see what you are trying to get at, but instead of condemning people for putting up lines on un recorded climbs, maybe you should focus on getting boulderers to better record their FA's.

I am curious to hear some opinions. here is my question to all you fine folk: is it appropriate to be bolting any boulders that are located in an established bouldering area? should we respect and protect these limited resources as we do our cliffs and crags?

Epic beer day day yesterday - and mountain bike ride. Did a really nice 25 mile ride at Kingdom Trails. Longest I've done in probably 10 years.

After the ride I cracked open an ice cold Heady Topper - just what I needed.

After that it was off to Hill Farmstead Brewery about 45 minutes away. Hill is actually rated one of if not the top breweries in the world. It's been awhile since I've been their to have my growlers filled and the new additions have only brought more people (of course it is a holiday). After an hour and half in line I got to the taster help - and had four small pours. At two and a half hours I finally got my growlers filled. Two Edward pale ales, Abner imperial IPA and Society and Solitude 5 double IPA. All rated in the top 50 or so beers.

On the way though Littleton I finally stopped at Schillings. Great place. Jef the owner was behind the bar pouring! Had what was probably the best Saison ever! And the wood fired pizza was excellent. Great place!

All in all a great day of riding and beer!

I'm pretty sure I've never done the middle route in its entirety but Troy and I have been up there shortly after wet weather (and one memorable spring trip where we encountered verglassed slab) and had great fun threading pitches across the entire face trying to minimize objective hazard.  There have been some sketchy traverses, unwise bolt skipping to mitigate drag, and other non-Mom-approved behavior, but hey, it's all 5.6 or so; what's the worst that could happen? (But that would be a horrible carry-out, eh?)

There's some v-notch/dihedral feature mid-slab, couple pitches (?) up that always gets my attention; you've got to commit to the exit before the next bolt, with some so-so Alien or C3 placement at your feet.  I like it.

As we can say that the next step to drive piton into a crack is to drill a bolt in a slab, what can we say about the evolution of the nuts to the cam that we have actually.

If the stopper could be good every where, why did we have some other device. It is because there is a limit to the stopper and the new protection bring solution for that limit.

My question is what is the limit of the stopper, what is the other protection that we can use and how the other protection work to protect efficiently the climber?

SL,

Thanks for the quick response and beta! It's nice to know that we've already done the crux. And your description of the last moves on that second pitch to the belay are spot on. Felt 5.6 spicy - since it was a bit far from the last bolt!

And I will assume the rest of the route climbs similarly as Lost from a gear perspective. I'll bet it's a pretty nice route the whole way and great addition to the routes in the area. And probably doesn't see much traffic since I couldn't find any info.

When I get to doing it I will be sure to post some info.

Thanks again SL!

Mark
