Exactly. I wouldn't pull out carrots on established routes and not replace them. That is the whole point I am making.

These bolts are glue-ins that have not been recessed. There are plenty of examples of this around the place. If one of these bolts actually fell out then fair enough - pull the rest as a temp measure before getting back as quick as possible to replace them. Or leave a warning sign. But if they didn't fall out I don't see why the urgent need to remove them all - especially since they have looked exactly like that for 14 years. They aren't exactly rusting away.

You previously stated that hero-looping the bolts was too fiddly. I was making the point that it is a hard route, that people would probably not be trying to onsight. So just rapping down and installing hero loops is a viable technique. Right now with NO bolts the route is unclimbable in any way.
