Alternatively, take Eric's advice and just climb the routes. I've done a number of trad FAs where I have no idea if someone's done them before, and don't really care.


The ability to have "multiple FA's" (ozymoron) was actually one of the arguments for clean (nuts v. pins) BITD. Striving for LNT tactics (including any record keeping) was considered something to try for.

There's a lot to be said for this. My sense of adventure was not diminished by the fact that some theoretical person may have done some or all of the lines before me. Unlikely, considering how much mud I dug out, but still possible, and really irrelevant to my fun.

Anyone who comes after me, if they happen to choose the same trees to rap off, may find old nylon webbing under the tree buried under however many years of pine needles. Aside from that - absolutely no trace (aside from somewhat cleaner cracks than elsewhere on the crag).
