This would imply that the majority of the climbing community is active on these forums which as I stated earlier is not the case. 4 or 5 is hardly a broad cross section of the Natimuk climbing community Nmontieth.

As for the closed forum I would at a guess say that of the 200+ members, a dozen or so of the same people would actively post. (you can still tell who posts although you cant access) The rest I would assume would lerk!

Climbingjac, what's the point of feedback when the people doing all the damage think they are doing the right thing. How's this for some feedback. If you know who is responsible for the routes that have sprung up around Red Rocks, Crag X area tell them to stop, they are hardly stella new routes and most could be done mostly on natural gear. People have walked past these route for years, and they were left alone for a reason, THEY'RE WORTHLESS!!!! The routes up near the Blair Witch stick chairs (anybody know who's responsible for the bolts you clip from the ground on the back of the boulder??) are a classic example.

>Odd, isn't it, how most of the moaning comes from remnants of that elite.

Elitest maybe but not elite!
