Our rules are pretty damn stupid sometimes. not only are the rulzs stupid but they are highly situational depending on who you are. Folks with the right street creds get a free pass while no names or less populer/out of towners get crucified.

According to the rulze it is completly aceptable to establish an aid line ground up with all kinds of trenching, chiseling, drilling, chipping and hammering yet a free climber who chips a single hold is crucified and god forbid someone established a hard free climb that atually makes sense and has the clips in the right places. I have done my share of GU bolting and sometimes it works out great but other times you end up with a sh#t show that could have been avoided with some pre inspection and planning. It sounds like Dannos incomplete line of ground up bolts on Castelton could have been avoided with a bit of pre inspection?

Don't smoke, do drugs or drink. Guess that violates a few of your rules as well....

I've noticed the same thing.

Funny how realizing the above is usually inversely proportional to actual climbing experience

I am a total as#@&%e who plays by the original ethics of desert climbing

No, you're a 14 year old kid from sheboygan.

Because you see, you cannot claim anything about the strength of your character when you remain anonymous online. You may have many valid opinions and points, but you are an anonymous person so I get to assume your identity.

Go have your mom make you a hot pocket, like the good little virgin teenager you are. One day you can bring a name or a face to your cred, but until then you have to sit at the kids table.

Pelut is pissed because he got busted for cheating his way up stuff in the Fishers.
Big Spaniard, little ballz, or something like that.

But his mama was plenty friendly.....

+100 for tradman.

-10^5 for rapchuffer.

I've always been appalled by the damage aid climbers do, especially in soft sandstone, and especially when they whine about bolts on sport climbs.

the californicated tradiban need to get over themselves. Your ethics are in your own head, and have nothing to do with the reality of modern rock climbing.

Besides, the chalk and shiney chains on the IC traderoutes with waiting lines are way more of a visual and environmental impact than bolts on a 13 you will never be fit enough to do.

Actually he's a troll. Not the real Pelut.

This is the real Pelut. un de tants

Hey rapbolter, make sure you climb the route before you chop. Otherwise you're a hypocrite!!

Hey rapbolter, tell what is your motivation to spent time chopping and rappelling instead of climbing?
Is puling the bolts give to you physical pleasure?
Are you proud that you chopped specific routes you can spray about? ( do you use your real name for spray?)
Anything else I missed?

Not my place, but Ill agree with Donini..It wasnt needed there on a classic . Forced lines of bolts isnt the classic in the making, not there. YUes it seems an awfully hard achievement for the fa team, but it may well have been a major oooops too...

*sigh* You start out reading something like this and think you've got something to contribute, but after a couple pages you realize there are 217 comments and several people have already done said what I think.

Karodrinker was correct back on page one, there are more people climbing 5.13 than you think, they just don't post here on the old folks home.

I'm pretty much in the "its a big tent and there's room for everyone at the table" camp, though I certainly understand and sympathize with Donini's reaction.
