Dropping a deuce

Hey man, don't yell at me. This isn't my argument that dude Brian started this shit and hasn't said anything. I never agreed to his idea just throwing some stuff out there for the sake of discussion.

I don't give a dogshit what the little sport wankers are doing on the web I'm not going to learn to speak French just to talk about bouldering. That's what happens when you get this old, you don't give a feck what people are saying.

Why can't this happen with the metric system?

The French System is starting to take over more and more every year.

Actually, a in Europe lot of people use the French rating system for face climbing and, in parallel, use YDS for crack climbs. E.g. when talking of Super Purple Crack (it's a variation of a superb route on Trident du Tacul at Mont-Blanc), people say it's 5.13 (or just 13), no 8a. Then, to add to confusion, there is Font scale which is not consistent with the regular French scale.

Anyway, I still don't get why people are so bothered by bouldering. What really bothers me is ice climbing, it's so silly with all the axes and the boots - why don't we let them have their own site, iceproject.com?

Climbing ice without all the axes and cramponed boots would be silly.

Stoked...

Several months ago I started re-organizing the CT area so that Bouldering would be segregated from the route climbing. Haven't heard any complaints yet... Check it out: Connecticut. In areas where there's both routes and boulders I've added the location in the route area and the bouldering area with links on the page to go between either area Bald Rock Basin.

An age old argument that reminds of the 80's when all skiers hated snowboarders. I have known climbers who won't boulder and vice-versa, but most acknowledge that one can benefit the other. Seems like the OP had issues with some of the local boulder junkies out East, as there is a bit of acid in his post. Anyone who has ever bouldered knows that alot of the "pebbles" can be very serious undertakings...particularly in the front range..Making them quite worthy of inclusion in this website. A choice could be made to use a different resource to get your climbing information.

Nice troll Brian! It really is fun to heckle those beanie wearing no shirt climbers who dont even know how much fun climbing above the tree/bush line can be. while we are at it we should exclude-
-n00bs

-gym climbers
-climbers who always go to the same crag
-slackliners
-basejumpers
-skiers
-mtn bikers(done!)

This site is great just the way it is. If the site became overrun with bouldering posts the I would say yes but I enjoy checking out info, stories, photos, videos on all the climbing disciplines in one great site. Just my opinion

My dogs got ups yo!

The only problem with this site is the lack of information for bouldering. A lot of the areas that I visit have almost zero information regarding the location of the boulder, start of the boulder problem, what's considered on/off, etc...

A great example of a boulder and the problems is the following for Carter Lake:
www.mountainproject.com/v/1303971

A horrible example of a boulder and the problems is the lack of any information provided for Red Cliff:
www.mountainproject.com/v/v3/106488167

I can't tell if people are just trying to get points for MP.com, or what. I'm probably just an idiot when it comes to directions, but I'll be damned if I can figure out which way southeast is when I'm in the middle of the forest surrounded by trees, cliffs, and boulders.

Maybe if the 60 year old plus climbers out there will stop walking around the gym locker room with your old naked a$$ "air drying" then I'll send a memo out to all the young-guns and so called "sport wankers" to stop going shirtless while wearing beanies :)

It is so easy to do Mike. Just pick a type of climbing and poke fun at it and everyone goes postal. Any kind of climbing on any rock is kind of a trivial pursuit when you stop to think about it. Although I do seriously think that bouldering should be separated out somehow. Good examples are what Morgan did for bouldering in CT or like ice climbing in NH.
