Ben Nevis - Shame on you. What a waste of a crag. 9-Aug-2009 At 11:52:22 PM southcol

>If you are a grade 14 climber - you could definitely hurt yourself.

Its not really slab related, but I remember hearing about a well regarded climber from a country very close to here. He retro bolted a bunch of sub grade 16 routes that were either unclimbed since the first ascent or scenes of nasty falls by beginners unable to attempt the high graded safely bolted routes nearby.

These almost forgotten unused routes became popular, helping newbies getting into climbing without risking injury or death...there is still plenty of unclimbed choss in the region to solo to match the ' thrill' of climbing run out bolted routes.
A good example of retro bolting??
