People who think there is any comparative justification or rationale of any kind for this behavior are completely lost.

Does anybody really think its not Ivan? And no the filmer is not as guilty as the chipper.

Every body is a saint with no ego ?

When was that ever even the issue? The dude smashed the fuk out of a boulder problem... and probably more. It has nothing to do with anybody else being a saint or having an ego.

that chipper is a hipster moron. he totally could've drilled a nice two finger pocket right there. lol, what a rookie. he should take notes from a world class chipper like yaniro or a frenchman and see what true cutting-edge route manufacturing is all about. elegance in movement at the expense of the stone. gotta break some eggs to make an omlette and all that.

From an old friend who knows Ivan...

He's an attention whore, so he will likely find some sick way to use this to make himself feel awesome.

The worst thing people can do to Ivan is simply shun him and ignore him. It would be worse than hell for him.

Climbing is relatively free of genuine drama, and even in this case, people seem rather civil/borderline wussy about the whole thing.

If you are going to show someone bouldering at Stoney and call them a pro, at least you could show them doing something 350 young hotshots haven't already done.

huh. this threads kinda going weird directions.

be nice guys... this isn't that big of a deal... just don't want to lose access or have future projects destroyed. Boulders are finite resources, and V18 will happen someday.

i just feel bad for that poor chipster. that granite looks rock hard. i'll bet his hands were super sore after that brutal round of "comfortizing". out here in the desert the sandstone is nice and soft. couple of sweeps of the hand and you got yourself a nice edge. you don't even need any hardware!
