Climbed Sunblessed today and someone has fixed a 2m+ chain to the first bolt, using a quicklink that has been closed with red lock-tight. The chain hangs down overt he twin dykes and even needs to be moved to get at some of the foot/hand holds. It is also starting to rust and will no doubt leave a rusty streak down the climb if left over the winter.
I'm assuming this has been done in protest of the first bolt's location... total BS in my opinion, as that high bolt has hardly dissuaded people from climbing SB in the past. It's classic route that one needs to prepare for by climbing solidly at the 10- grade in order to make those first moves (5.8 or 5.9 max) safely.
Hopefully someone will get rid of it soon. Easiest might be to just replace the hanger completely.
Interesting the chain placer has stayed quiet? Maybe they ran out of money adding chain to every 10ft run out in Squamish and couldn't afford their internet bill?
