"Little Cottonwood Couch"

After almost two years in SLC finally went to check out some of LCCs bouldering and I came across a love-seat dumped in the Secret Garden.  Interesting first impression.  I believe it's near the aptly named "Beer Can Cave" as I found about 50 beer cans scattered out there as well.  It's on the south side.  The boulder itself has a hard looking problem in the cave on the north side and an easy romp up a flake right where you get to it from the trail.  Lots of slabby climbing on other sides of it.

The people who left it there wrote "property of..." with their first and last names on it.  They also wrote 'please take care of this couch..'

I would really like to see this thing gone and I'm guessing I'm not alone in that sentiment..  If you need a seat, pack one in and out.  

Entirely possible that climbers didn't put it there, but I wouldn't want someone to think that climbers did.

If it's your couch please remove it, otherwise if someone wants to help me get it out of there PM me.

Good hell.

What are the names?  Did you look into that at all?  I don't have a truck to get rid of said offense but am willing to help.  Just say the word. 

This "hammocking" craze seems to be doing this or it's just a symptom of more people in the woods.  Found 4 plastic chairs stashed around a fire pit earlier this summer.  Thankfully they were light so we packed them out without much trouble.

I hope that if those who put it there see this they will get rid of it but they probably aren't climbers, the more I think about it..

It's not my business to decide the punishment but I do wonder what would happen if they were turned in.  Which is why I am erring on the side of not sharing that information for now.  It's not federal land but..

Plan is to get it out of there on Saturday morning!  A  kind user on here reached out to me.

If there are names on it I would suggest contacting the Forest Service LEOs and let them handle the initial bit. Then let them know that when they are done you would be happy to volunteer to remove it.

That can be arranged.
Allen, quit being the voice of reason.

Seems like the couch IS the local ethic. It was there before you.

Couch and a bunch of trash (including a pair of undies) was hauled out this morning around 10am. If anyone (Boissal) needs a broken down leather loveseat let me know. It's missing the cushions, has several rips, and a bunch of graffiti on the backside.    

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
