I don't think that all climbing should be safe, i believe that fixed gear should be exactly that 'fixed' not
something that might only 'hold body weight'. If I place the gear myself I accept the fact that it might fail
but at least i can be responsible for assessing that risk. Why should people have to rely on fixed gear
that is to say the least dubious. I just think if technology is there use it, thats what they were doing back
in the day. I think that 'tmarsh' has it pretty much nailed. There should definitely still be bold routes out
there, the problem i have is with replacement of gear that could be made safer with old technology.
Maybe if fixed gear is removed from a route it should be left with the gear removed. The problem I have
is with people that think climbings all about an adrenaline rush and an ego boost, sure those things come
into it, but so do so many other factors.
