What does your community do about "route developers" that put new lines 2-3 feet from existing lines, routes that cross other lines, or adding bolts despite sharing the same climbing sections???

Retrobolters are worse. Can't live with 'em, but shooting them can be problematic.

Looking to replace some normal bolts with radio controlled explosive bolts might be a solution,..

Chop em? If they feel so compelled to grid bolt, why wouldn't it seem reasoable to grid chop em?

from the mp link above
People are complaining that this is a squeeze job and are also able to place pro in the cracks. This is an example of over bolting and they should be removed!

if you're able top place pro in the cracks then do it. is someone forcing you to clip the bolts?

Skitch and Scrubbing bubbles should take a boxing class or something. You guys NEED drama. Bad. Might be good to get those aggressions out.

Yeah the East side could use a good rope pooping legend... Ian, Vic, and Collins head up there first thing in the morning! Remember you got to get their fixed ropes too though and stir it up with a stick and a can of beans... For full Yosemite tradition climb above them on another route when they are out climbing for the day and throw lunch bags of crap and try to go for a direct hit. You could always use a bigwall poop tube rigged as potato canon for best aim? When you see them on the descent trail later that day threaten them with maiming and broken bones in a large group. Then make them go to a sit down meeting with the INYO SAR and local sherrif! They can pitch their tent on the Zoo lawn and be consoled by Paul during the week while the hearing is conducted. Do not let it go for 30 years!
