A couple of question for you: -How's this climb going to look in 20 years if folks keep dry tooling it?
-How will your grandchildren associate with areas like these when there far from pristine? Will it be possible for them to hold the place in awe for its natural wonder? Or will they be distracted by toll taken through the lack of respect from previous visitors?
1) Everytime you get on these climbs, they're different because the rock is so bad.
2) My grandchildren won't see this unless they too scratch it up.
3) Will it be possible for your grandchildren to hold the place in awe where you climb at where there are bolts everywhere "destroying" the rock...murdering the impossible or will it be the lack of respect from you and other visitors?
I can't believe you use chalk too. Destroying the rock.
Hey Noah...nice picture. It should be pointed out that the area you are climbing is practically grid bolted...I was SHOCKED at the number of bolts and fixed draws all over that area when I was up there last.
Something to consider when talking about "murdering" the impossible.
Comment was meant more in the sarcastic way. My point was, don't be pointing fingers at others for "scratching" the rock when on the other side of the spectrum, you're not helping the rock either. To each his own.
