Interesting. Many of the newer bolts in these areas are from other climbers as well. Case in point: http://www.mountainproject.com/v/elemen ... /106773170http://www.mountainproject.com/v/axis-o ... /105741725http://www.mountainproject.com/v/tingey ... /106291286
(which had bolts added to an established line. Now, in fairness the knowledge that this was an already established line came after the bolts were placed and the bolting party added them with good intentions with the knowledge thay had at the time)
This is just the Becky's Wall area, and those are bolts being placed by others than the person you are so angry with. So your statement: "So I would publicy like to thank him (not) for bringing the Wasatch down to his level so he can profit on the Wasatch, one bolt at a time."
should apply to a lot of other people as well.
I have seen the additions to the schoolroom area, and I do not agree with what has been done. He has a back story (or excuse) for what he has done. I suggest you talk with him, and let him explain his thoughts. In reality, I know nothing will come of this other than it will further set in your mind the hatred you have for this person. It will be two closed minds in a room, trying to justify why their point of view is right.
SLCtruth, good luck with this.....
