having worked in a now deceased climbing gym (yes i'm still mourning the loss of vic ranges), I can tell you that new climbers and random people off the street DO like to try the overhung stuff. First timers usually consider it a novelty and jump onto routes and walls without thinking of the clip OR the swing factor.

I've watched many first timers come swinging off walls and thanks to the clip in policy we (tried to) enforce, the swing wasn't so bad. That being said, when a first timer actually made it up to the first clip, the clipping process did confuse them a bit.

catch 22.

but imo, re-clipping the steeper stuff is a lot safer for everyone.
