Burning Down The Couch

Bolting is one of those things that always leads to plenty of discussions. Over the years I've heard several a Swedish climber weigh in on sparsely bolted routes; all I can suggest is that they check out "The Pet". It's a big, water polished wall, traditionally bolted providing the possibility for solid airtime and here, no time is lost in removing any modifications that might alter the character of a climb.
