If a route is impossible for you to do safely, then don't do it...

Ever done the Dike Route on Pywiack Dome? Should that route have never been bolted?

The stuff in the Pinnacles would be nearly impossible without bolts.

I sort of agree with the philosophy that if you're gonna bolt, make it sporty. Sweat like you were climbing the route in its natural state without any protection at all.
