Comments: It is an incredible stretch of the imagination to suggest that Rob Pissman is "an inspiration to us all."
I believe saving wild places for future generations trumps individual glory any day.
Long live the wild places.

Comments: I support wild places and the spirit of adventure. We are losing wilderness at a frightening pace.

Comments: This is pasted from page 4 of the regulations:

The requirement that all gear, including pitons, chocks, or other climbing aids be removed and the prohibition
against use of glues, chock, or other aids, is intended to preserve the natural character of cliff faces and preclude
visual disturbances which may occur should devices or evidence be left in place.


Please exercise good judgment climbing in Glen Canyon NRA.

Comments: Please keep in mind that all bolts, pitons and other fixed gear should be removed. Climbing here is a privilege and we should follow the regulations set forth by the National Park Service.

Comments: Aleix,

Your comment sums it perfectly for me even though I have never touched this formation. I suspect many of the people on this chat agree with your position.

Geir, great idea, PM sent.

Eric, I never thought of those areas as a list, just places I have enjoyed climbing in for a long time that have regulations that are above and beyond average. When the land managers rule for no new fixed anchors it is something I notice because it very much impacts my decisions as a climber. I have no... more >>

Comments: It sounds like this route sucks and the persons responsible at a minimum should be banished from the climbing community.

Eric why do you aggressively demean any person who mentions access or the future of climbing? Lots of persons have studied access issues for decades and watched with concern as climbing area after climbing area is shut down or access limited. It seems if a person has a "right" to publish a guidebook, then others have a "right" to mention access worries on a stupid blog. ... more >>

Comments: I support a careful erasure of this mistake. It will be a lot of hard work, good luck.

Comments: Josh Janes quoting Royal Robbins, ha ha, that is pretty funny.
Is this the same guy who was recently photographed in an R&I article called, "Defying the Bolt Ban in Red Rocks?"

Comments: This route is but one of several West Elden old school testpieces which may not be in print format.

Me chum onsighted this route today with just a few little cams and two big nuts, traversing in from the left and skipping the (retro?) bolt by climbing in above it, following the natural line of holds up this sweet face. What a beautiful clean line, a proud, testy journey from back in the day like so many others at this lovely traditional area.

I can see how the bolt allows one to make more o... more >>

Comments: It's been nearly 15 years, but I remember we were calling one of these walls "The Wave Wall" because of its unique appearance.

Comments: Dave Gershwin and Jeff Ludwig showed me these walls about a year after Rob Drysdale died, sometime in 1993, we were calling one of these "The Whining Dog Wall".
