Is there any way to make it a Monument again?

Where have all the climbing enforcers gone? Used to be that placing an unwarranted bolt or leaving a bit of trash was grounds for getting your eye dotted in Josh. Now look at you.

Robert is planning to put out an announcement, but now that you ask....

The Pit was not a permitted activity and I understand there was a complaint to the county. The county levies substantial fines for such things so the decision was made to shut the Pit down.

It was great fun while it lasted. I certainly don't regret all the work I put in. I got to meet a lot of good people. But that is the end of it.

Yeah, it was giving all the local permitted meth labs a bad reputation.

All it takes is one as#@&%e, but you know, there's one in every crowd that ruins it for everyone.

Actually, it requires that one A-hole AND a host of other people willing to idly sit by rather than call that person out and make them own it.

It appears The Pit was a microcosm of society attitudes in general whereby people are willing to sub-contract all the justification and enforcement of what is right rather than confront them and demand they clean up their act or push-off down the road.

There's only one way to fix some kinds of stupid and talking isn't it. You pull that trash stunt in Idaho (or Utah for that matter) and you best have 4 spares and some butterfly closures on hand.
