Arrrgh. here we go again !

Every body is a saint with no ego ?

I *like what Bullwinkle, Dingus and Werner had to say upthread.

What I have to say, I already
said on FaceBook when I first read the news/saw the vid.

Werner has a good point. The hat IS the same. It does look like Ivan. Fishfinder is right: what if it WAS a woman filming? Or even someone who didn't want to get beat up and have their camera smashed or taken by an angry scofflaw?

I just went to his FB and pulled this off of it:

I am seriously thinking it is Ivan, but draw your own conclusions.

That is messed up, IMO - but justify it however you wish.

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.

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.
