I've never climbed in this area, and I don't sport climb all that much, but I have to ask?

WHY THE FUCK ARE SPORT ROUTES FIXED WITH DRAWS?

Rap rings I can understand. But I just get this.

Would someone explain this to me?

It's so you don't have to put them up or take them down. Also, you can bail off the route safely and without sacrificing any gear.
