I said it was not cool, but I didn't give any explaination, and I hate dogma without thought (bolts when lower off bolts could be more beneficial then the act of placing permenetnt gear). My rationale behind that it isn't cool is that it is presumtious that there won't be another party looking to climb the same line and interfering with someone else's experience is a big no-no in my book.

Being presumtious is not good (like the group years ago who through a rope down on my head when I was leading Fritschens Follies before I got my first piece of gear in.... and the excuse was , we assumed that no one was one it since there wasn't a top rope. Presumtious.

I wonder, did Smike and Chas go to the same school? Have they ever been seen together? My spelling is not great but I've not yet gotten that obvious, or so I think.

this site needs to have a spell checker.

Most of us, I guess, have a word processor that includes a spell/grammar checker. I use Word to vet my posts. The problem is that the same bug previously pointed out, namely truncation of text at punctuation marks of text copied and pasted from a webpage, also holds true for text cut and pasted from Word. So hyphens and single & double quotes and some other characters must be gone over, replacing them with keyboard characters.

You guys do realize that Firefox has a built-in spell checker, don't you? Also, if you install the Google toolbar in either Firefox or IE, you get the Google spell checker as part of it. There are also alternative add-ons for FF.

There's no reason to use Word or any other word processor.

LarE, funny you mention Project X. On the day of the first ascent, the crew arrived early in the morning only to find all their gear had been stripped from the route over night. The gear was found neatly piled at the base of the route. After some expected angry theorizing as to the identity of the perp(s), the guys went to work and eventually finished the route. Purposely leaving gear in place was never a common practice but it happened occasionally. Traditionally, gear left for any reason was considered booty and many regulars have prided themselves on being able to extricate most pieces left in place for whatever the reason, regardless of where it was left or by whom.
