The first pitch is a bit close to another of my routes but it's not "Just another squeeze job"--it's an excellent route, but I'll bet you didn't climb it so you can keep your comments to yourself.

Didn't need to climb it Ed as I climbed both routes to either side. If you wanted to add pitches to either of those routes cool. You can basically top rope the dam thing from the other routes. Everything does not need bolts. Grid bolting is just poor style. How is Frank? Got there 2 days after he fell helping you on the route. He looked pretty bad from the pictures I saw. Maybe you should knot the end of the rope next time or fix it to the anchor. Some of what you have done at The Potrero is good but the grid bolting is ethically uncool. Oh did you replace the first bolt on the route to the left, it was there the year before but missing after you put up your route?

You're wrong--the first bolt hanger on the route to the left has been missing for many years but you wouldn't know that since you're a newcomer. Frank is doing well.
Before I bolted that first pitch of Double Trouble I had a number of people climb it and tell me if it was worth bolting since you can get to the second pitch via other routes. Everybody said it was a good independent line and to go ahead and bolt it. Double Trouble is completely different from the other routes near it so you should have climbed it before spouting off.

Bud, I've bolted 248 pitches in the Potrero of which only 4 might be considered to be a bit close to other established routes and almost all of them put in ground up. So I don't think I have a problem with ethics.
