I actually thought dave.k was hoping it would re-open soon, which I thought was pretty funny given how long other areas stayed closed post fires. Maybe he wasn't round when the last couple fires rolled through?
BTW not being precious - I don't care either way myself. Haven't been & won't be climbing anywhere near the gramps anytime soon.
