Gunslnga - Of course what I said was half in jest. I don't really want to see it come to violence. But climbers that care about the place need to lean on those who don't, and let them know they will pay a price if they don't clean up their act. Like you said, word gets around.
Thanks. My standard for webbing found in situ was to never trust a single piece, no matter how good it looked. I'd only trust a single piece if I was the one leaving it, right then. Otherwise, I'd add a piece, even if the original looked good. You never know the history of what you find in place.

Sadly, that's only a slight exaggeration. You know I dig some of the more "out there" traditionally protected lines, but I can't imagine doing trad routes exclusively in the red today. You'd have to be some kind of dope to not have any interest in sport climbing in the gorge. Sport is where it's at ...
