Has anybody else gotten such an e-mail:

The email comes, ultimately, from Jeremy Frimer. He's climbed a lot at Squamish, and occasionally posts here on ST. He recently became Dr. Jeremy Frimer PhD, and was immediately punished by being given a job in the Psychology Dept. at the University of Manitoba in Winnipeg. In terms of climbing, this is worse than being sent to Florida or Nebraska. Much worse.

He's now overseeing a grad student who is conducting this research.

I haven't had time to do more than look at the first couple of questions and throw up my hands and say "AArrgghhhh! another stupid survey." But that's just me.

Yeah, I got the survey too.
I thought it was fairly interesting, as it asked us to associate some emotional/moral terms to the argument that I normally don't associate with climbing. I'll be interested to see the results.

Interesting, but disappointing that they didn't have the courage to pose the same questions regarding the actions of Kruk/Kennedy - the bolt choppers. They could have gotten much more out of the survey/research. Bad science...

I think Frimer harvested the emails from this thread & sent it to everyone. I received it too & did it. It was sort of weird, the questions being asked.

Psychologists.

Psychologists. Grin.

I like to place bolts because:
a) I see it as a service to the climbing community
b) Real climbing is too difficult for me
c) It gives me a boner

I like to chop bolts because:

b) Putting up my own routes is too difficult for me

tried to do it but it took too long on dial up.

I sent a rude email to Frimer and he answered with a polite one. He'd never survive the taco.

He's suffered far worse slings and arrows than the taco can dish out...

The odious email is academic.

When I found it bothering my inbox, all I could think of was Oscar Wilde rocketing from the crypt and saying, "The unmentionable, in pursuit of the inedible".

If Cerro Torre is too hard to climb at 5.11 - A2, or freed by David Lama at 5.13b, you can always take up fox hunting...

Not much action this year. I was down there for part of December and January and the weather was back to its old atrocious self with windows in the 6-12hr range, not the more lenient 24-48hr range....ahh...Patagonia...you are awesome. I thought I heard that there were a couple of successful climbs later in the season.
