Does anyone know who owns/is responsible for the large blue pad located near the Ride The Lightning boulder? There was some mention of it being from a near by University.
My assumption is that everyone will not want this to impact the State Park's view on the climbing community. Thanks in advance.

Perma-pads. A natural extension of the perma draw debate haha. For projects so hard you dont have the energy to carry your pad with you. Sounds like perfect ethics to me! Couloirman

Cool movement on this line
A friend told me about this today. I say it should be removed asap. if you cant do the boulder problem over regular pads, dont climb it. do not threaten our access because you cant commit with normal carry in carry out pads. matthewWallace

Jeremy, Thanks for posting this, just saw it today for the first time...
I've posted on both Indoor Ascent and Vertical Dreams Facebook pages that parties to be have a week to remove said pad... After that week it will be removed and deposed of, no if ans or buts...

The act of bring said pad out to Pawtuckaway is a careless and thoughtless act that could out right damage the relationship that we have with the park rangers an if said park officials so saw fit could band us from climbing in the park...

This is the third event in a year that could jeopardize us being able to climb there... One being some fool/fools cutting the trees down out front of The Whip (which is a huge no no in a state park) and the other be the tagging that took place the same year (non climbing related but could be easily thrown our way)...

Climbers think twice before you do something like this... It might be cool at first but your going to mess it up for the rest of us...

Agreed. Let me know if I can help out with the removal in any way. Also it would be cool to hook up sometime Chris. Seems like we climb in the same areas of the park. I scrubbed the 5.7 at the Yellow Dog wall last weekend...well enough so theres holds to climb it...haha. Catch you out there. Enjoy. Jeremy A

Yup I saw this yesterday out there. It was tucked away under one of the boulders and there was a large group using it on ride the lightning. I dont know if it was theres or not or if they were just making use of it. Travis Dustin
