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!!!

If anyone would like to know the names and consensus grades of the problems located at the North Side boulders you are welcome to message me. I have done extensive research here through my time living in Brevard by reaching out to locals and the many decades of first ascentionist who have frequented this place over the years. I understand that there is a lack of guide book for this place but this is intentional in order to preserve the serene vibe offered to each individual that climbs here as well as to maintain a positive reputation with the forest service. I am also available for personal bouldering tours (free of charge) as I love sharing this place with the community and fellow passionate climbers. All that I can humbly ask is to put this place above you in terms of your impact and understand that access is sensitive. Thanks.
