Crimpy,
I'm interested in hearing about wilderness ethics and the conservation mentality in boulderers because I really don't see it myself. Yvon Chouinard used to (maybe he still does) rail quite elequently about this. I'll try to find some of it and post links for you to read.
Re. IG.You may not remember the incident several years ago when he named a boulder problem "The sweat of a Rapist." Yuk!
This kid went wrong.
