Ethics: Placing sport rings to destroy aid climbs 8-Mar-2013 At 7:00:48 PM sliamese
This makes no sense Macca! replacing a 20 year old bolt, that was bomber when placed but is now a time bomb makes sense. There is NO skill in taking the aider off your harness and clipping it to that fixed piece. So i think it is NOT bad form to make it close to the FA person standing on a good piece.

If your placing a bolt next to gear, bad form.

If your leaving in removable aid gear (peckers etc), very bad form.
If you leave any gear fixed while aid climbing, probably poor form.

yes i have aid climbed (dont anybody judge me!), and consider bolting an aid line to free it poor form.

I think putting a bolt ladders on grade 18-21 terrain the worst form, why dont i just put a rust ladder up the guts of taipan and justify it as a FA?!
