It is not with in the the power or scope of the climbing community (nor should it be) to determine the business practices of Miguels or any other business in the Red for that matter... While it may contribute in some way to the overall crowds, it is not worth focusing on as we can do nothing to change this "problem" and it will only serve to piss off the people we want working with us.

I am not talking about just fixed draws, nor am I blaming any one person or group of people, but how do we as a climbing community safely manage the large amount of people. We have more parking, camping, and businesses catering to climbers than ever. How do we manage all of this?
I'll edit my post to say it's not 100% of the problem, I was wrong in saying that but I do think it's a significant factor.
Just hackin on ya Michelle.
