Totally irrelevant really, the over-riding principle here is that you don't retrobolt classic trad climbs. Full Stop!
I don't care if 90% of your 'silent majority' think it should be bolted - they are probably gym-bred climbers with very little idea of the greater traditions and ethics involved in actual climbing..
The ethic across most of the worlds climbing communities is that retrobolts get pulled out!
