Dealing with shit 14-Aug-2007 At 9:43:32 AM cragrat
Part of the problem is obviously education.

No matter how much you know there are heaps of people coming into climbing who don't have an "outdoors" background, don't know basic back country hygiene, or basic rules of leave no trace. It does not apply just to climbers either and then even those who do have the background still can be lazy.

In terms of on site removal:
I am not in favour of plastic bags for poo - just because you are still faced with the later disposal problem. Our council has bio degradable (cornstarch) bags that can be used as liner bag inside another non leaking bag. This allows simple removal and deposition into a septic system or motor home disposal point.

I should say here that I worked for Outward Bound in the Sierras of California for 5 years and on a 3 week back country trip could happily not use TP over that time and am pretty comfortable with dealing with poo in dry high altitude areas.
