For sure... I would love to do it placing all the gear at some stage, but theres other things higher on the priority list. You could strip it each weekend, but its not the easiest job as there is no anchor. You have to backclean and/or lower of a single bolt. As a weekend warrior with limited time on the rock, leaving the gear up is a pretty good option as placing the 16 odd bits of gear/draws is pretty hard work... It also means you can have a fresh burn when you rock up.

Are you for real??? By that logic the route has probabaly only ever had a few (2 or 3) ascents. Even HB clipped preplaced gear on the send... The gear placed on lead was all after the crux.
