Rickster - it's not like Supertopo, RR can't delete his OP and make the thread go bye-bye. Donald is responsible for his posts, and only he and the webmaster can control what he says.

As for saying you really like a place, claiming that that is in any way equivalent to publishing a guidebook is just silly.

From what I understand, the whole fun about LC is keeping it a word-of-mouth and explore at your leisure kind of thing. What RR was doing was proclaiming how much fun it is, which in no way goes against those goals. No-one ever said LC should be a secret, or that you shouldn't say it's fun - merely that it should not be published.

GO

Goclimb,
I understand what RR was "proclaiming", it's quite obvious. And, I've not asked him to delete anything. I would be one of the last to censure.

I agree, a simple thread post has much less impact then a published guide. But, this thread is out there on the world wide web none the less, building stoke and drawing attention ( as does any further discussion).

Regarding publishing, sharing info via the web, word of mouth, slide shows, etc., I've been there, done that, and have seen first hand how it effects a climbing venue.

That all being said, if my point is still missed, then have at it.

I've done that corner and arete. It's really good. It's kind of hidden, I've also walked past it lots of times without even noticing it until a friend of mine put me on it. Super fun..

OK, but where are the photos of this? You got GPS coordinates? Maybe some gear beta too...

Yeah I do Mike. It's UTM coordinates 060123345E 1123498W on the South Pacific Samoa datum. Gear beta is 18 #2 Camalots, and for photos you can visit www.whereislostcity.com

i was suprised to see the new touch screen display lining the model of the ridge at the visitor center features a small lost city blurb and 360 image.
