Another concern that I have is the replacement of individual pitons like the ones on Classic that should be replaced very soon. The second pin on that route is a cause for concern as I question whether it can be banged out without breaking the exposed section completely off. Thoughts?
I've been very concerned about that 2nd pin on Classic for a long time. I can bend it with my fingers. It's decoration-only by now, and given that Classic is a very popular moderate, should be a high priority. That pin protects against groundfall from a close-to-the-grade move, and protects seconds from a swing into blocks as they work out the first move.
Thoughts, though? I am also very concerned that it will break off in situ. There is no gear there. A bolt would be just ... heresy and cringeworthy. That's the extent of my deep thoughts.
