Lots of discussion over the years whether Superpin in the Black Hills e is a 5.10R or 5.10X. This summer, after 35 years, the sole bolt that is about 2/3 of the way up the route, has been removed. Now it is certainly 5.10 X.
“Currently none. After removal of the retro-bolts in summer '11, there is now no protection above the crux bulge.”
The bolt was placed there after a piton, which the first ascensionists used (as far as I can tell), broke off. It will definitely cut down on the number of climbers willing to lead this route. Personally, I think that is good; climbing is too dangerous to allow people to do it. It should be banned.
