I understand what RR was "proclaiming", it's quite obvious. And, I've not asked him to delete anything. I would be one of the last to censure.

I agree, a simple thread post has much less impact then a published guide. But, this thread is out there on the world wide web none the less, building stoke and drawing attention ( as does any further discussion).

Regarding publishing, sharing info via the web, word of mouth, slide shows, etc., I've been there, done that, and have seen first hand how it effects a climbing venue.

That all being said, if my point is still missed, then have at it.
