25 years is nothing for stainless bolts, I put in 3/8 inchers at Rumney that still look brand new.  Non-stainless on the other hand are old before their time.  Anyone not using stainless is a cheap bastard .

Two years ago my buddy and I linked up Whitney-Gilman, Pinnacle, Standard Route on WH (with the 5.7 variation to keep the grade consistent), then Funhouse to Upper Refuse.  According to MP stats, it's 26 pitches and 2,950' of climbing.  We linked pitches and simul-climbed a lot of it.  Did we use the Auto Road?  Oh, hell yes.

About 15 years ago, my son and I did the 1st 4 pitches of the DD, rapped off and did all of Moby Grapes, then drove over to Cathedral and climbed Recompence. A long day.

I'm turning 70 in July. Better get after this stuff now, while you still can.

Reiterates how inportant it is to use stainless in the north east.
