How about you re-read my original post, where I said I only carried a few spare brackets, before you start calling people a twit.

Air2Spare however, had something like 12 carrots from memory, and a few placements, and was marked as a trad climb.

Yeah, if you doing a trad climb chances are you have nuts on you and you can slide them over a carrot, so it's not exactly the end of the world, but it seems to be a mistake, so why not fix it?
