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.

Bullsh#t.

That's like saying a newsreporter is responsible for the Syrian war. Total bullsh#t.

Yeah- run down and confront the guy with a hammer and chisel in his hands out in the middle of those blair witch project looking woods- good idea.

I reckon it was a hidden cam triggered by movement or a remote anyway.

No way. The camera moves during the course of the video. It was handheld for sure.

who cares about chipping? unless you never pounded a pin or drilled/clipped a bolt you really have no room to talk.

The vid was made after many attempts to stop the chipping. It's lame to blame the filmer. The public exposure is the next step.

If two things are similar, they are the same.

It sounds like they'd been looking to find out who the local chipper was for a long time, and wanted to nail him on video.

I wouldn't go confronting a big strong guy in the woods with a hammer in his hand. I think their tactic will ultimately be successful in showering opprobrium on the chipper, even if that boulder had to take a few extra hits.

Can't wait to hear the Duane Raleigh take: is this the right guy doing it the right way, or just an artless poser?

Yep, I've drilled bolts.

It is WAY different than pulling out a set of chisels and a 5lb sledge to MAKE holds because you can't climb what is there.

You whip out a hammer, you become a "manufacturer" of holds--pretty simple, really.

Artificial climbing is just that...

The link provided shows the video. There is an article that accompanies it; http://www.dpmclimbing.com/articles/view/just-cleaning.

I can't tell whether it is Ivan or not. He normally wears glasses and it would seem a bit strange to take them off while banging on chisels.

Ivan is a really good boulderer and led the charge that brought the Gunks out of the bouldering doldrums it had languished in for a decade or more. It would be really sad if, after opening so many eyes to the possibilities all around, he would turn to manufacturing routes as he aged, and I for one hope it isn't true.

Not if you're worried about rock chips flying into your expensive glasses.

easiest thing would be to just go erase the problem with a chisel...

its already chipped anyway
