Topic - Pitons - remove or replace with bolts?

Pete_Frost on 07 Jun 2013
Anyone else fed up with finding thickets of in-situ pegs rusted beyond use, staining the rock and blocking gear placements? Why don't we change our ethics and remove pegs (like we do in winter) rather than leave them in place? Leaders will then have to place their own pitons or use modern gear. Let's even contemplate replacing existing (NOT NEW), peg belays with stainless steel bolts so they don't dribble rust down the cliffs for all to see. Surely that's the best way to respect the rock......

Anyone wants me, I'll be in protective custody ;-)
