....First Chop!!! That's a disgusting sight!!
That is horrible. I cant believe someone put a bolt there. Where is this monstrosity?
not likin' it indeed
...don't give a shit about ethics or taking care of the mountains that allow them to make a living. It's easier to clip this than to place a cam, and it's even easier for their clients to unclip this bolt than remove a cam. So you see these next to cracks everywhere in the Swiss Alps. They get chopped, and one of the other wankers replaces them immediately. This particular one is on Pizzo Badile but there's plenty more where that came from.
I have a similar photo from somewhere in the lower 48 from this winter...
granite splitter - check
perfect #0.5 placement - check
big fat bolt - check
This was MAYBE a 5.2 crack...low angle, perfect hands...you'd have to WANT to fall here to fall here.
