I’m 3 bolts up on this 10c “sport” line. Hanging by my left arm, I shake out my right while looking up at the next bolt. It seems so far away, but yet clearly provides a marked pathway along the otherwise bare rock face to the two rap rings 80’ off the ground. I try to remain calm, thinking, why are the bolts so spaced out? This Mountain Project “sport” route should really be listed as a mixed route, and honestly the bolt at my face is right next to a perfect 0.5 c4 placement and a sweet rest jug.


There is no such thing as a stupid question! Right?

I am sure at some point in our lives all of us have either asked or answered a silly question that perhaps we didn't quite think through before it came out. Have you ever thought, "Did you really just ask that?" Or, "Did I really just ask that?" I can promise if you're that guy or gal then you are not alone. We've all been there - at least we had the courage to ask and gain knowledge. In the end I think most will agree that it is better to have asked and know, rather than to have not asked and not know. When we're in an unfamiliar situation, sometimes asking a question could mean the difference between life and death. The act of asking a question isn't stupid, but yes, sometimes the question itself could have had more thought behind it.
