Someone is hanging "art" on a cliff in the Sespe. Pull your trash down now and save me the trip. Alex Bury

Maybe a bad Jackson Pollock tribute? Or is that cliff sacred to the Spirograph tribe? John Badila

Very frustrating. I wouldn't expect them to do the work to clean it up. I would have liked to see those things removed instantly. Now we have some rain coming. If you haven't got to them yet, I'll help out whith the removal if you need it. I'll do it in the rain if we have to. Joe Garibay

To make matters worse, these "banners" will likely become shooting targets soon.

I'd be willing to help clean up over the weekend.

Hey Alex, thank you very much taking those down. I was wondering what you were looking at up the road while I was climbing Pipe Cleaner. I thought you were scoping new lines or boulder problems in the dried up river. I wish I could have helped but I was working today. How many bolts did they put in to hold those things up?

Yo Jon. They probably installed about a dozen bolts to hold them up. They were small diameter, funky hardware store type bolts. Im pretty sure now that they werent actual climbers but who knows.
I removed about half of the bolts. Several remain, mostly at weird heights I couldnt reach from below or above.

I guarantee you that whoever did this put it all over instagram. You just need to think like a douche and figure out which hashtags they used Cocoapuffs 1000

Thanks for keeping an eye out in the sespe Alex. And for picking up the trash. Just because one can hang stuff on a rock, doesn't make it art. That person has a piss poor artistic eye. Joe Garibay
