The crowds associated with the Red were one of my biggest concerns before moving closer a year ago. In a year of climbing I've spent two afternoons climbing next to another group and never waited for a route. I mostly get out on weekdays, so probably not a true representation, but if you want solitude I think it can be found when you reset your expectations and reprioritize which crags and climbs you get on.

Just talk about how you haul a few dead bodies out like we do in Cali.

You aren't having a good time unless you've got at least 9 friends to share it with.  Just don't forget the bluetooth speaker and the hammock.  Someone's probably rolling with an infant as well.

LOL i literally saw someone with a toddler at a crag where you had to traverse over water to get to the spot.

You know you can't count it as a redpoint if you start from the high horse you're already on.

That’s sport climbing with heavy quickdraws.

Cool post.  Did posting this make you feel better about yourself. Feed that that entitled attitude that you climb harder than those who have friends but are less experienced. So their inexperience makes them inferior to you. So much that you need create a post online to display how great you are. Climbing is popular, it sucks,  but deal with it like an adult.  Don't be dumb

Trailridge isn't, really. The tone of the OP is kinda jerk-like.

like you didn't stared in in the gym where the crowds are. Whatever, climbing is climbing.

The ratio should also be 1 unleashed dog to 1 human. And bluetooth speakers blasting dub step. 

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
