Huh? I've met Ivan Greene. He's a really strong boulderer. Strange that with all of the climbing he can do, he would choose to chip. Climbing rocks is so much more fun than construction.

Maybe the chipping that goes on will stop when a/the crowd "watching" kicks the shite out of the person doing it to set an example for the rest...


...I doubt that either will happen, but it would be interesting to see it play out.

Glue is to preserve critical holds that make the route what it is, and which legions of gym trained monkees don't know how to pull on, as they lack the finesse which comes from climbing virgin natural rock. My personal opinion is that holds which are usable for the FA w/o glue can be justifiably reinforced by the FAist to retain the character, and difficulty of the route, to prevent overtrained lunks with poor footwork from ripping them off the wall.

Glueing should be rare, legal, and done with the utmost craftsmanship.


Other than that, it can be anywhere from an eyesore to an abomination.

Ya'll aren't even taking this seriously anymore. Everyone knows that a good old fashioned Swedish Poonjammer is the only acceptable tool for a job like this. Runs on hope and magic. Keep it well lubricated for maximum effect.

"It's just a boulder, there's millions of them everywhere. "

if thats the case then he wouldn't have a problem moving on to one he can climb!--furthermore IMO-he had plans to chip/manufacture alot more holds --why else would he stash all those tools---EVERYONE has made mistakes-but this is clearly past that-what a self centered little glory whore!!

They should put a bag over dudes head (rendition-style) then take off a couple of key digits from the guy.

Whoever doesn't show up to the next big session due to injury may be the guy to shun.

Missing fingers = scarlet letter = banishment/ill treatment from now on



….but that's just my angry side coming out…. there is a much simpler way of putting the mark on the dude.



Edit Edit:
I clip a brush or stick to the end and clean what I can reach. I've only rapped a couple boulders for cleaning purposes.

 I got to rap-clean a great boulder problem in Bishop once.. R/X (though no one will ever fall off this thing).

Called it "High Anxiety".

Didn't break anything that wasn't clearly falling off under weighted pressure.

I think Mick may have mentioned it in one of the latter paper guides for the Happy's, maybe not… it's a liability.
