A few very selfish people are bolting on FS land. They risk everyone losing access. And for what? Cracks first climbed long ago? That's some FA! We know who you are.

I thought this over and we are all good. I don't think that route has been climbed and I am sure you guys checked that what you are doing was above board. Man when I see any of you again I'll buy you a beer and give you hug. Again sorry to be dick, my bad. :-/
