Was this a competition though?? If not we are talking about someone showing up at a site just like any other climber (albeit a freak climber with a camera crew) and shouldn't they be subject to the same ethicla and moral guidleines as every one else. I think that once again we have run into a familiar corner, elite climbing ethics versus layman climbing ethics, I don't think anyone would give me an onsight for climbing say Swinging at Araps if all the draws were already on.

Look forward tp your thoughts. I maight start a poll on this.
