Itz not about '...crime...' , sime --- itz about time --- the times in which climbing is now context-ed... The state and federal governments have a ' museum ' attitude to wilderness areas in tasmania --- this means that as long as there are large , comprehensively-represented&protected areas of bio/geo conservation, then it is ok to ' sacrifice ' excessive ' representations for the' good' of the broader community...

The same applies with climbing --- there ARE massive numbers of climbs, representing all-styles&aspects of the climbing-culture, already firmly 'protected' by the various scenes , locals & ' common sense ' ... the 'time' in which we now find our-selves is inceasingly demanding a certain smoothness-in-continuity-of-experience from the suburban front-door ---> along smooth-well-maintained roads---> to the easy walk-in ---> to 'the bit we came all this way for' ---> and safely-smoothly home-again ...

The neo-challenge these-days is to be able to dream-up the ideal climbing-trip & then execute it as smoothly as it is experienced when it drifts sexily around the mind while still in suburia ... the post-modern world is choked with political-correctness and presentz daily ' challenges' at every moment ... more than enough challenges to satisfy those who just want to pour-down the perfect milk-shake&savour the perfect Horsham-Oven-Door danish-pastry of-a-climb... ultimately we are talking about saturation-beta --- nothing left to experience but the ideal experience itzself ...no single grass-seed in the sock that ' spoiled ' that perfect bush-walk ; no single mosquito-bite that 'distracted' from that perfect sunset ; no single move '...out of keeping with a quality 5-pitch climb...'

AAAAhhhhhhhhhh !!! --- these ugg-bootz feel SSSOOOOOoooo GOOOooood ....
