I am Jane, the OP, who criticized sponsored athletes holding a low standard of climbing ethnic/style. Just in case you do not know, I am Chinese, to be more precise, I am Chinese American. I was born and raised in China but now I live in US and Canada and climb in US, Canada and China.

I like what Donini said about "One world". We share "one world"; Supertopo forum may have started by a bunch of American climbers, but by now, Supertopo forum is participated by climbers from all over the world with various shades of skin color and ethnic background.

Quote from Bullwinkle,
"Hello Yang Xiaohua, please remember that we Americans and Europeans Invented Rock Climbing and if you do not hold the same ethics and climb the way we do, you're evil. If you continue to Climb in a way that does not please our collective Egos, we shall do to you the same thing we do to all Brown People that question our beliefs, we shall invade your Country.

You have been warned, be like us, or we won't like, you. . .

Edit, I agree with you Jim, but I also feel that if rap bolting, hangdoging and aid climbing are acceptable, then why not bolted cracks? I've climbed a few bolted cracks in Europe, nobody complains.

Yet when some troll with their Petzel Gear gets all whinny about a bolted crack in a quarry in China, everyone goes all Ron Anderson. . ."

... why Kauk didn't just bolt Magic Line instead of preplacing gear.
Maybe install a handrail next to it.
