Some say its Ivan Greene? If that's the case what a shame, always thought he was a pretty rad dude. Hopefully its just the meth or something.

Looks pretty Ivan like to me, and confirms stories I had been hearing recently.

Is this Ivan Greene with a Chisel?

Did you ask him if it was him via the messaging abilities of Facebook?

Wait. A guy filmed this and didn't call the chipper out on it? That's as lame as the chipping.

That looked like borderline quarrying

No it isn't. Sure, it is lame, but it isn't anywhere close to as lame as the chipping.

No it isn't.

You call it like you see it and I'll call it like I see it. Whoever filmed that and continued to let it happen is just as lame as the guy chipping. 20 seconds of film would have been more than enough. Then you could walk up to the guy and tell him to stop. By not doing that you are lame.

Never met the guy. But haven't heard anything good. One question that comes to mind is is that a natural boulder or an overgrown old quarry. I know that there is a quarry near Kingston that the locals actually replicated the route Chouca by going to France, topoing the holds and then returning home to do the drilling. Crazy perhaps, but this is climbing. Over on MP they're calling it at the Gunks. If so then the rangers there should handle it. In the vid there's a reference to Kingston and text that reads "on public land". If that's the case, well I just don't know. The beatings being recommended over on the other site probably isn't the answer.

I'm not a local so don't have too much say, just find it interesting and worth a discussion. It isn't like he's drone striking kids...

Point taken, and I fully agree. I had it in my mind that the camera was one of those motion sensing wildlife rigs... which is clearly isn't and I should have known better.

I'm surprised nobody caught this, but he really should be wearing some eye protection.

How does that work? He may be lame but it's a totally different lameness from chipping. Plus, she may have had a realistic fear for his safety. Some people get freaked out when caught and no one should be forced to take physical action if they are not comfortable with that.

Second the mention of no eye protection. Careless.
