How may draws can one pre-clip before they get called out?
It’s also possible that he climbed up and clipped them, then climbed back down to the standing ledge. It looks pretty chill through there(for him), and that’s actually a pretty common tactic for routes with ledge rests.
Called out on the internet… For climbing 5.15. You stay classy, Luke B.
The amount of preclipped draws IS relevant to the legitimacy of redpoint claims and the grade/difficulty of the climb has nothing to do with this fact.
Agreed. A good case in point would be Dave MacLeod and A Muerte.
It all comes down to style of ascent.
If you read the starting text, this video starts partway up the route, so those three draws are not the first on the route. Seems most likely he climbed up, clipped, and climbed down to rest.
