Anyways the junipers, while not that specific one, will long out live us as a species and will probably have the last laugh.

1) You clearly don't understand the issue.
2) Junipers don't laugh.



Brandon is right. I am always disappointed when folks call Rumney "granite"... especially when comparing it to Sierra "granite."

Just to set the record straight. . . my comment was about the tree cuttin' spray master, NOT RileyRad!

Sorry! Did not mean to imply otherwise. Was not trying to rip on Riley. I thought both you and Riley had great points! I agree with you both 100%! I'll edit my post to prevent others from misunderstanding my meaning!

Didn't know it was a juniper?
Sure enough.
Fits with the rest of his actions.

So is Ethan off the hook on this one?
After a careful re-reading, I don't think so.

Taking responsibility for this act is a step in the right direction.
Some tangible proof of sincerity maybe next. Community service comes to mind.


This individual has done irreparable damage to a promising career in a highly competitive field.
He has broken federal and possibly local laws and will no doubt be contacted by authorities.
He has lost all trust and credibility in the climbing community.

While I personally find his actions beyond comprehension and incredibly stupid, I try to keep it in perspective.
He will be paying for this stupid action for a long, long time.

Keep in mind everyone makes mistakes.

the convergence with the Goblin Valley Destructors is striking.

It's like he means to apologize, but he's just too full of himself to understand how he undermines his apology. He implies that he's such an important climber that talking about his screw up is sufficient to fix things?

I don't know, but it sounds to me like he still seems to think his mistake was cutting down junipers, not cutting down trees for his convenience in general?

Also he makes it sound like it was during his second trip that he was "thinking" about the tree and got the sudden inspiration to make things safe, but I missed the part where he just happened to carry a saw with him???

I understand the issue much more then you think. No junipers don't laugh but people do. And this issue is about selfishness on both sides. The juniper can give a crap less about you or me they don't frackin think. People on the other hand do in some cases they may want that juniper being where it is so they can have their moment in nature take a picture of it and post it on Facebook. Or in your case they want someone to cut down that juniper so they can boast about how assume they are for knowing better on the internet. It is crazy how we as a society will use a poor mistake by one person to show what a better person we are when in reality we are just covering up for their own infalibilities. See I'm doing right now. As I said better then days of our lives

His post didn't come across as remorseful. Rather, it seems he got scared and is trying to save face.

I let nutter's comment about my ASSUMENESS slide... I figured he may be ESL. He's still clueless, regardless.

The response shares disturbing similarities to the "scout masters" who toppled the rock to protect lives.

Name calling - classy.

I'll follow it up with this - is mchrist having an affair with Erica Kane??? Find out tomorrow as supertopo deliberates!

Edit. Again pointing out grammar errors and phone misspellings to show how much better you are then (or is it than) others - wow you are so much better than (then) me.

So Ethan didn't cut any trees down.

It's a good thing the supertopo detectives launched a campaign against his livelihood and character, just in case.
