I was at Crescent Crack Buttress this weekend and discovered a chiseled boulder at the intersection of the trail where you go left to Crescent Crack Buttress or right to the Egg. The rock has two arrows with black tar in them and the words "Hong" and "Egg" chiseled in. It looks as though the criminal didn't finish carving "Crescent Crack Buttress" in. Maybe their wrist was tired. I've been climbing here since 1994 and I've never seen this graffiti.
THIS IS UNACCEPTABLE! PLEASE STOP!
Little Cottonwood does NOT need signs. If your are the person doing this, please stop. In fact, go back and attempt to remedy your shameful act. If you know the person(s) who did this, please beg them to stop.
With such descriptive guidebooks to the area, we do not need signs to help navigate to the crags and routes. I have found my way around crags throughout the western United States without signs. If I needed a sign I would go to Veyo, of the Gym.
Once again, please stop carving the rocks of Little Cottonwood Canyon.

I have seen this rock too. I believe it is new either this year or late last year. This cannot happen. Please, if you are not thinking of what the repercussions could be for this act, check out other areas that are no longer climbable. PLEASE stop this. It is Graffiti no matter how you look at it. It is destroying and defacing rocks. PLEASE PLEASE STOP.

|I didn't pay attention to the posted signs or the approach beta on this site, and got ticketed for parking in the small pullout across the road from the old approach trail.|
