A grey fox skull wedged in a crack 100' up on a FA I was working on - don't see that every day...

That's a great attitude EDJ - chances are the rope will be "cleaned up" by someone in short order, then the owner of the rope will come on here whining about their "stolen" gear.

I was hoping it wasn't someones "TR- solo" setup, pretty lame. Please clean it up soon or I happily will.

Keep eldo clean and beautiful. Its not a place for fixed crap! Anyone that thinks their project on some silly variation is so important that they are entitled to leave a fixed rope surely doesn't get the spirit of eldo. The nerve of some people really bunches my panties.

don't start the flame war...

i am sure the fella will move his rope.

and by the way, i think he has the spirit of eldo,
having done more than most of us ever will there,
and living there, and doing first ascents there, etc.

for all you people know, he could be working on cleaning
a new route for you all to enjoy safely..

Is this a nice rope? I could use a 10ish mm.

I was going to say that. It's raining down here in the Springs right now. Is this rope also getting wet up there? Does it have a good, quality dry treatment? I find other so-called dry treatments just are not up to snuff.

Why didn't you say it was your rope to begin with? Oh, I get it. . . you're super-cool!

I'm guessing you're building lots of support for your ACE submission.

What a bunch of hairless ballsacks you Eldo folk are. Threatening online to jack a rope with accountability, hating on people owning up to what they're doing honestly, just generally being walking talking excuses for cold sores-

Golden Fuckface Award goes to the first person in this forum to set themselves on fire. The rest are second best.

Hey, what's new on Oprah's book club list, you walking testosterone cases?

I am going to weigh in here to tell you guys that EDJ is a no shit badass. He's working on a New Route that most of you could only dream about. Stop bitching. It will be great. Or,maybe you only like pre-approved, helmet friendly, not-too-runout, past achievements...

Hi Joe.
I've stayed out of this until now.
Working a route I could only dream of?
You mean a rehearsed headpoint?

Yawn... No matter the grade. It's been done if it isn't 5.15.

That is your values and perhaps his. And other people may or may not be impressed. If you expect them to value your goals, perhaps you should acknowledge that theirs are different.

Different strokes for different folks.

Thanks for that Tony. Well said.

It is amazing how people try to legitimize their actions. In some cases, others will do it for them.

What I love about Eldo... it is one of the best preserved areas anywhere, ethics, style, history. But, the Boschefellers and the Hiltionians are pressing in. It is unlikely anybody will be impressed by some 5 whatever, rehearsed headpoint. But, if edj is so BA, then it should only take minutes to ascend the nearest route and set up said fixed line. Then, remove at the end of the day. Nobody will have a problem with that. Style kids, style.

If you really care so much about pristine wilderness and outdoor ethics just stop climbing. A line hung temporarily on a project is much less an eyesore and much more temporary than the trails, chalk stains and tape balls "environmentally conscious" and "ethically driven" climbers produce on the daily.
The greenest thing you could possibly do is to go hang yourself from a fucking tree.
