Because the degree of environmental damage is irrelevant? Just like how building an open cut coal mine to power an endangered sparrow mincing factory in the Galapogas Islands, is exactly the same as driving your Prius down to the shops to buy organic blue berries for $12 a punnet? They both damage the environment after all.

All of the "environmental" impacts of climbing trad routes (which mainly seem to surround the tragic loss of lichen... won't somebody think of the lichen?) exist for sport climbs as well. Plus you've got the bolting thing and (more likely than not) increased traffic on the routes.

No you read the thread (translation: my position is so obviously correct that anyone who doesn't agree should just keep re-reading the arguments and counter arguments until they agree with me.)
