Are there any routes on grit that can't be top roped practically?

It certainly doesn't look like it from that I've seen (disclaimer: seen lots of movies, never been there in person), in which case the "no bolt" ethic makes perfect sense to me. If a bumbly wants to have a lash on something bold without risk of injury, they should jump on it on a top rope.

I don't quite understand why top roping is the red headed stepchild of climbing, particularly on cliffs less than 25m high that aren't too steep (or have clear swing zones), and have reasonable top access.
