Topic - Sport Climbing Vs. Bolt Clipping

Olli-C - on 14 Aug 2013
Just read this article by Andrew Bishrat, Editor at Large for Rock and Ice Magazine. The article explains how sport climbing is long term projecting and anything else is just bolt clipping. I can understand how he believes the process of long term projecting is good and very fullfilling, but what I cannot understand is his insistence that it is 'better' than all other forms. I mean is Ondra's 9a+ onsight really just bolt clipping?

A surprising amount of people seem to have agreed with this strangely narrow minded view.
