There are a few reports on MP of human waste + paper on the GT at High E.

It is absolutely no one's job to go clean it. And I hope it's getting scrubbed by rain as I write this. I'm not even going to raise the possibility that someone might go attend to it. But ... I hope it disappears soon.

Ugh.

It might have been due to extreme urgency rather than inconsideration. Then again, who carries toilet paper on a climb?

Or, it could have been fear induced at seeing the step around move over the void.

Guess the Preserve will have to install some signs on the GT Ledge (note the small sign underneath the main message).



Seriously though, I think everyone ought to have a few Biffy Bags stashed in their pack. http://www.biffybag.com/how-it-works.htm

Emergency or not, leaving shit paper behind is irresponsible, ignorant, incosiderate, and just plain f***ing disgusting. There's a good chance the person who did it may peruse this site....You may want to consider educating yourself about LEAVE NO TRACE principles.

If someone is carrying toilet paper it is probably because they think something is brewing. If you think it might happen, don't get on a multi-pitch climb. In the very least, if you feel the need to carry tp up 140 feet then carry what you need to properly dispose of it.

Pig! I was hoping to finally lead it all tomorrow. After all this rain who knows where its laying right now. Earlier this year I stepped in someone's load that was washed down near the base of Tequila Mockingbird. Once in a year is too much. Guess I'm waiting until the spring to lead High E.

Combined with ever present bird guano, it's got to be pretty ripe up there. However, there's been a lot of heavy rain.

Unfortunately, moronic assholes who do that sort of thing also tend to try to hide it for some reason, so it takes even longer for nature to dispose of it. Is this pile out in the open or cleverly tucked under an overhang or protective rock?
