This climb is a three-star classic, but still languishes in an incompletely bolted state. I know there's partially bolted routes which should probably retain some of their semi-trad character (see recent Cocytus thread, for example), but IMO Highway One isn't one of them. I see it as an out-and-out sport route which happens to be missing a bolt at the start, another near the finish, and a proper lower-off. It should be a sport 7a, not a trad/sport hybrid E4 6a.
Would anyone disagree?
