Another manufacturing incident mentioned in the latest Rock, in the article about James Scarborough: he was trying a boulder problem in Germany, came back to try it again 2 days later and in the meantime someone had enhanced a couple of the holds! Hold enhancement also happened to a Fred Nicole V15 he was keen to get. Now that makes me spew!!! It's one damn awful thing to chip the rock when attempting to create a new route, but another even worse crime to chip where others have succeeded before!

In general, Australian climbers have good ethics, are a friendly lot and have fun climbing (of course there are always those who spoil it for the rest, in all these aspects). Let's keep it that way and not follow the path of many crags/climbers overseas. I think one of the advantages in Australia is that we have plenty of rock in relation to the number of climbers using it. Therefore we can afford to be selective and shouldn't feel inclined to put a route up every piece of rock that we can lay our hands on, particularly if the result is nothing all that good.
