I didn't read the whole thread, but can anyone describe the scene when Arrow got two bolts? I was happy when the old 1/4" spinners were replaced with modern bolts. However, I hate those damn rappel routes. There is a perfectly good walk down that will get you back to your gear at the base in less than 20 minutes, in large part. The point is, everyone's got a threshold.
As far as Ivan goes, and I don't condone chipping, but I get the sense that this guy has already paid and will continue to pay for his blatant indiscretions. He's already got a scarlet letter hanging around his neck. If he's caught again... I suspect the penalties will be quite severe.
