I agree that people shouldn't have been on your property and it is your right as the owner to close it off to everyone and for all activities that you so deem. BUT I also think that calling other landowners to persuade them to remove access is petty, reeks of revenge and brings about nothing but negativity and more harm then good. Just because you've been wronged doesn't mean you need to call up everyone and start moaning and groaning about how they need to bar climbers from coming on their property... let them make their own decisions.
i plan to bring it to the landowners attention! they may not even know that they have trespassers on their property vandalizing it!
it is the land owners right to have the information! you need to remember that there is a significant liability here! if a climber is hurt the will inevitably be suing the land owner! i believe the land owner is entitled to be informed of any possible liability he/she may have!
let me remind you that is was some unscrupulous, low down, trespassing, sneaky, vandal of a climber that has brought this to the climbing community! i am only reacting to this and protecting myself and my land.
this is what happens when you break the law and vandalize someones property....backlash! you obviously do not see exactly how F!@#ING angry i am about this!
i plan to let the other land owners make their own decisions. what do you think they are going to say and think when they find out that climbers have trespassed and then proceeded to vandalize their property? i believe they will react exactly as i have! remember i am a climber and i am pissed off! imagine what a non-climber is going to think?!
this is a simple, basic example of respect! the climber did not respect the land owner and now everyone will suffer!
think about this the next time "you" decide to disrespect some one or their property. you have no right to trespass on any property! tell your friends! the person who bolted my rock is a friend of some one on this board!
