Topic - Threading etiquette

chers - on 06 Jun 2012
Meant to post this a while back after a trip to Portland...what do people do when they're climbing sport routes and others will be leading the same route or top roping? I though it was good practice to leave your quick draws in at the top and use these to lower off/top rope from so you wear out your own gear rather than thread the lower offs each time and top rope through the lower offs? I saw a lot of very worn lowers offs at Portland and wondered if this had exacerbated the wearing out?

Plus, isn't it just a waste of time and energy if everyone in your group threads the same route over and over?
