Au contraire, 512OW! First ascentionists who stick to a strict 'Leave no Trace' ethic, ahem, that would be me, surely deserve massive bonus points for 'preserving the experience' for future ascentionist. These future ascentionists would receive significant penalty points (think big minus sign) if they even suggest that said route needs a good cleaning. These same future ascentionists receive even more points in the minus column if they garden, and then fail to repeat said route, which would then have to be regraded, 5.10+AG (after gardening) for instance. Only fair, don't ya think.

Of course this ups the ante considerably in the points chase, as a climber could completely wipe out years of accumulated points with even one sufficiently miserable performance.

You've got a good point.

I'd get more points on your scale, cuz I've never cleaned a damn thing.

I'm all for it!
