Very true.
For those who would sanitise the experience by making it 'safe for the masses', they are missing out on a meaningful experience.
There is room for both, and we are blessed with an abundance of rock to cater for all participants aspirations.

I like the idea of 'X' category climbs or at least skull/crossbone symbols in guidebooks. Those who want the 'safe experience' can then avoid testing themselves if they wish, but it does not give them the right to sanitise those climbs.
