All I can say is priceless. It seems kind of ironic to me that climbers, especially those who always profess some deep spriitual connection to the rock, seem to think the rules set up to preserve those "sacred" rocks shouldn't apply to them. Any climber knows that no matter how "permanent" or "timeless" the rocks may seem, we have an impact on them when we climb them. Anyone who has ever gone spelunking or bouldered up on Flagstaff knows that even our hand grease can irreversibly alter rock formations and holds, making them permanently greasy. Wow, that was a longer rant than I thought it would be. My only question is what kind of spiritual vibes were radiating off the Hi-def cameras as they rolled and how come Dean never mentions communing with them?
