Some moron decided to detach a giant chunk of rock off of the left side of the Warm Up Boulder at the North Side Boulders, and permanently changed a few of the problems on that boulder. With fresh dirt revealed from this removal, and still there, leads me to think this happened very recently. Trundling a part of a boulder that has held up strong, despite sounding hollow, for at least the almost 20 years I've been bouldering there seems unnecessary and excessive! Destroying the small hemlock that was once rooted in this chunk of rock just added insult to injury and proves that whoever did this doesn't belong in this boulderfield! This is not acceptable! This is not a gym! Treat these areas with respect, or stay at home!!!
