βeta: There are three glued on holds. It is possible to climb without using the last one and the one before that interferes with what is a good flake so it should be possible to not use that one too if it is removed. Perhaps somebody should try the move past the second bolt without using the first glued on hold and then maybe remove that one too.

βeta: I am in agreement with Seb here. There is no doubt that this route gives decent moves but it is fully created and also compromises an existing route. Another in a long line of examples of the desperate desire for a first ascent being at the expense of showing respect for what has gone before. Retro-bolting Sox would have been better than this but that doesn't add to the new routes tally!

βeta: When did it become acceptable to stick on extra holds? This route has multiple (10+) glued on extra sharp holds. They should be removed and this route removed from the log. The bolts could remain and provide protection for Sox if that is deemed acceptable.
