I heard the audio of an interview he did with NPR in which he points out "at least two other ascents". So now, in addition to the horrible judgment of over-hyping his own ascent, he has now publicized ascents by other people who were smart enough to shut up about it. This really undermines any effort by the Access Fund to claim that Potter is an exception who doesn't represent all climbers, and that most climbers know how to play nice.
An apology would go a long way here, but I think he is too arrogant. He also said that while he doesn't regret the climb, or publicizing it, he regrets it being blown out of proportion! I've always thought he was kind of full of it after reading some stuff he has written, but after hearing this, I have come to suspect that he is not very intelligent. That statement is very destructive to his emergency-self-preservation-campaign. It's like giving the finger to everyone who is upset by his stunt because he is saying that he doesn't respect our opinion on the subject.
Finally, he made this lame statement about "mis-management of the national parks" as if to imply that this whole stunt was a pre-meditated act of civil protest. If you're going to protest environmental abuse by the government, don't use a narcissistic and environmentally destructive act to do it. Feed the homeless or plant a tree or something instead.
