You have to put some sort of emoticon after that question to let me know that you're joking.

I think TrappDyke is missing the point.

Gunkie, you said rangers could prevent climbers from top roping climbs with "decent" protection. I was just wondering how you planned on giving Gunks rangers, half of who know little about climbing, the authority to dictate which climbs are "allowed" to be top roped and which ones aren't.
So, if you were a ranger in the position you proposed, what climbs wouldn't you allow to be top roped do to what you'd consider "adequate" protection?

Wow, I have read through all of this and I have a couple of comments. (Ignoring Kent's posts for the moment)

1) Let's police ourselves. Are we trying to go back to the rigid days when AMC dictated the "who/what/where/when" of gunks climbing? It's a slippery slope when you start getting an "authority" involved

2) If you don't like something....say something. It's a simple as that.

3) Why are we trying to "outsource" issue resolution when we are right there witnessing the offenses in real time?

"...Gunks rangers, half of who know little about climbing,..."

Actually, ALL the rangers know quite a bit about climbing. Many of them climb regularly, and some of them have made some hefty climbing accomplishments.

Good post Gail. (Except for the bit about ignoring trespassing of course). :-)
