Who is putting fixed draws on Flying Elvis? Take them down, the route has stood this long without needing unsightly metal hanging off of it.

Fixed draws or just project draws?

Sorry, should have clarified... These are chains with a fixed biner installed on every bolt, pretty ugly.

Just my input: I was there last week and there is NO fixed draws, they might've been removed since this was last posted.

There are no fixed draws because someone took them off - anyone want to take credit? This is a remote climbing area - the ONLY people going there are climbers or friends of climbers. A better outlet for over zealous ethical zombies is to replace shitty anchors instead of jacking peoples' gear. Fixed draws are widespread in Arkansas on steep routes that benefit from them, and I have yet to personally hear anyone have an issue with it.

Furthermore, I've never even seen another climber there, let alone anyone else. Oh, for what it's worth, the first bolt in the roof of Brick Attack right next to Elvis is about halfway out of the rock. I didn't have any tools, or else I woulda tried to tighten it up. I don't think flying elvis' fixed draws are gonna piss anyone off or threaten access or whatever, especially since there are fixed draws right next to it that nobody ever bitches about.
