If you call hanging some pansy-ass banner off high e "taking action"...
Well, this action is better than inaction.
Do you really think that they planned on leaving the banner there to shred in the wind? Of course not. That would absolutley be littering.
Really. I am totally surprised that we climbers are split on this issue. When we climb we make a direct connection with the medium which we value so dearly and debate so hotly on this forum, and yet it seems that some of us gunkies aren't willing to go the extra mile to protect it.
Buying a season's pass does not entitle someone to ignore how to live efficiently in other parts of their life. Leave No Trace ethics can go beyond the trail...
Arguing regarding whether or not global warming exists is a ridiculous as denying that the holocaust happened.
Can climbers really believe that the environment is really so expendable that we're willing to abuse it so badly?
I know I'm an idealist, but I would hope that's better than the other options.
