I just checked again and everything got deleted from their instagrams. Even Joes pic of him on the route in Tahoe.

I heard they cut the tree on the split pillar & made a single toothpick out of it.

I'd hate to see two strong climbers reputations ruined because we don't get the full story.

But it is ok to slander the reputation of a "weak" climber? Who gives a sh#t how hard they climb?

Whoa!

Hard to think anybody would think that is kosher, least of which would be public climbing figures.

Maybe they had a subman do it to keep the heat off.

What area is this at?

Does anyone else see the irony in the comments in the above photo?

If you're referring to the part where Dean Potter chimed in and then shared the photo on his account. Yes, yes I did. But I also think it's indicative of how far he's come since his own incident.

Wait,

Are you guys saying the arch is in the same ballpark as lopping a tree down for a photo shoot?

fixed junk on watkins? civil disobedience on DA? leaving trash. even a lot of trash, is far different than killing for a climb.

Yes, ironic because of the Delicate Arch debacle.

While it probably didn't harm the rock, it was a public display of climbers behaving badly.

Lopping down a juniper is a crime in many areas.

Where is this climb located?

I saw the same thing for what was at the time the hardest climb in Yosemite. I said, WFT, cutting down a tree for a climb?? I've also seen this up at Castle Rock in SC, by some "well respected" climbers.

It's interesting, we live in houses made out of wood, love beautiful instruments made from gorgeous wood, wooden ships, bars, chairs, on and on.



What's my point?




I don't know.

Gear manufactures take note:

If this sh#t is for real, I will be paying attention to who sponsors the perpetrators.

Who am I? I'm an upper-middle-class weekend warrior with disposable income.

In other words, I'm your core market.
