I dont think its very responsible putting pictures like this on the internet. You're climbing right next to a sign that says no climbing. You want to make the access situation worse?!

Well, obviously whatever date the picture was taken, it was after the climb was closed! It is evidence of climbers breaking the rules, which can in turn antagonize the rule makers to make things more strict. I dont support sonnies video either, for the record.

How can it be worse? You're kidding.. they could close the entire crag that's how it could get worse. At the moment its perfectly legal to top rope this climb, starting 10 feet or so off the deck. I think you should mention that in the route description.

I know the lower malumute is awesome climbing. I understand you want to share that with ppl, but please keep things on the down-low. I now live in new mexico, and the access situation here can be pretty bad, and is getting worse. Landowners dont give a shit about climbers, and we have very little power to stop them doing what they want to us and our precious climbs.
