Really? Sweet!
I chip holds too. Sometimes on a first accent, but mostly on classics. I love finding a classic line that is I little bit too hard to climb, chipping it to your level, and then blaming other people. Itís so much more satisfying. But not really, cause there arenít any climbs that are too hard for me to climb, I just chip them anyway.
What kind of chipping equipment do you use?

' ...What's Not On
There are commonly accepted climbing ethics that apply in Tasmania. The most obvious one that applies to bouldering is that manufacturing holds, or chipping, is simply not acceptable. Dirty chippers have marred areas such as Gnarly Spider and Rosny Rocks. That said, cleaning the rock in preparation for a first ascent with brushes is a necessary part of developing new areas. Sometimes there is a fine line between aggressive cleaning and chipping, especially in soft sandstone. But there is a simple distinction that should help clarify the issue:
Cleaner = Good climbing citizen
Chipper = f---wit
If you don't understand this then piss off back to Europe, and take your stinking pof with you ! ...' (Tasmanian Bouldering Dot Whateva )

The real challenge in chipping is to make the new hold look like an original rock feature. This requires skill and talent that Iím sure you wouldnít understand, so I wonít waste my time trying to explain it.

And the beauty of this is the fact that only I know about the Ďsecretí hold, because I donít cover them in chalk. The amount of damage Iíve done in chipping is nothing compared to what some people do with a chalk bag.

And as for this thing about cleaners being so amazingly perfect and innocent, these are the douche bags who scrub rock, machete tracks, inspect natural protection, place bolts to make them safe yet challenging and work hard doing something they want to do! They have no idea what climbing is all about. Itís about destruction, not creation. Havenít they seen cliffhanger?

The great 1980s tradition of chipping in The Blueys was inspired by India(29), with it's associated comment : ' It wouldn't exist with-out aid ! ' ... This inspired Pakistan (25) : ' It wouldn't exist with-out a chisel ! ' ...This then inspired a generation of F@#$ wits to chase the latest 'cool' trend... This then inspired a pommy-climbing-mag-article : '... The Blue Mountains --- lovely walls covered in manufactured holds ! ...' This inspired Cliff Care to turn the ' creative ' tide , before Australian climbing went completely down the international-reputation gurgler...................Thread ' 34 ' ...
