Old trad ascent changes as routes bolted

Hi, I had a few trad ascents on routes that are recently got bolted and also my ascent got changed to sport. Is there a way to log historical ascents for the same route e.g.. till a set date instead adding the same route as a historical trad one?

Yes there is the option to change the ticktype of your route from redpoint to greenpoint. That way the ascent of a sport route counts as trad. See: https://www.thecrag.com/en/article/ticktypes#greenpoint

I did change to greenpoint, but still counted as sport. Check Pamír 7- on my profile: https://www.thecrag.com/climber/fcsab

The ascent is definitivly counted as a Trad ascent. Look at the list of routes that are taken into account for your Sport CPR: https://www.thecrag.com/ascents/has/sport-cpr/by/fcsab?sortby=rating,desc it isn't listed there. But the list of Trad routes does: https://www.thecrag.com/ascents/has/trad-cpr/by/fcsab?sortby=rating,desc

The notable ascents summary displays it as sport red point. This could be a caching issue. Don't know if the stats are always computed instantly. Check your stats tomorrow again.

It still not shows trad in the grade pyramid.

I can confirm that greenpoints count towards the grade pyramid for sport climbing.

So this is probably a bug and needs to become an issue on github. Fehér Csaba are you able to create one?

Maybe just chop the bolts and change the route back to trad?

Fehér Csaba I had a look at the route again. Why is it sport now? It just has 1 bolt and the topo shows slings and a piton, not a bolt. Normally I would say a route with pre-placed slings is a trad route. If just one bolt was added to replace the piton I is still a trad route but with one bolt. This makes it a mixed-trad route. In the past I changed the style of routes to trad + bolts if it is possible to climb them without using the bolts.

The topo and the bolt number (1 piton) was outdated by recent bolting. I hadnt updated it.
