I would think, at minimum, a person would want to be able to successfully do the problem before contemplating messing with the bolt image. Especially one that people obviously hold as a strong symbol of history in the Valley.

Whats the big deal here? That problem is kinda ugly anyways. And if you need to have the lightning bolt there to show where the problem is then I don;t know what to say. The bolt is just inflating your ego if it has to be there in the photo of you attempting it. Despite being in the middle of a campground It think we need to strive to stop leaving such eyesores. I'd rather see lichen and rock in its place.

Coz, Bachar's original chalk is long gone at this point. So whats the difference.

I respect James as he thinks out of the box.

Not that I've ever climbed the thing, or stood at the base of it but I feel inclined to chime in and say (respectively) that I don't think your actions were right here.

It is no one persons place to decide what is right and wrong and what should or should not be removed. If it was your boulder problem and people were drawing sh#t on it well then you might have a case but there is history to that problem, and history to the bolt itself.

Add to that the connection to Bachar (RIP) and you should have known you would ruffle a few feathers.

I'm not going to call you names and threaten you, that's not my style but if this is true and not a troll, your actions seem rather disrespectful and saddening really.

The thing is still there as of an hour ago.

Did something die?

Or someone just redrew the thing back up there?

James, you better not f**k with the graffiti in the 2nd bathroom stall. There are some gems in there that transformed my life perspective when I first arrived in Yosemite and hung out at the C4 bathroom all the time, surrounded by mooks, basking in the fact that I was then, at that moment, shitting where legends shat...

James never cleaned anything completely to begin with.

Removing the StoneMaster "lightning Bolt" and leaving the man made black carbon behind it from the campfires
that used to be there in the early days shows incomplete consciousness.

In other words "Stupid Americans" think they're cleaning or restoring something
and only doing a half ass job and then thinking it's complete.

Ho Mannn

James .... you have earned a date with the "K Dorm Flasher" .....
