James, you seem like a decent guy. That being said, I believe the bolt is one piece of street art that should have remained. I never did the thing, so I have no laurels to rest on, just my impression. I mean JB his-own-self drew the thing, and it's only chalk.

Really curious about the motivation here, to out trad the purists?

What other purist things have you done that warrant such an act on your part?

Good luck keeping it off there....


And on a lighter note: How did everything become a "rig" to be "sent?"

Classic Coz! Thanks for making me smile. I'm sure James knew it would be put back and it will be there for the foreseeable future.

"Not sure why Dean, my friend is being nice to u, or sucking up...

But u just erased some history, that my boy JB did, I don't care who you think you are.

Basically you're a dork, and a fool, and should apologize to the world wide climbing community.

Your action seem attention grabbing... Maybe Mommy wasn't too nice to you, but you can never take back what u destroyed."

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.

In all Respect,

I looked to the image, long before I could do the problem.

It may have been the one thing JB left... that had Mojo.

James, you really screwed up, and to brag about it...

You just stepped on the toes of the few and the many...

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" .....
