/ new research on climbers/environment
(can't see another thread on it...)
Was climbing the day of the Royal wedding up Shepherds Crag and have not climbed there for about six years as I usually avoid the crowds. Did Ardus which was an old favourite of old.
Only to find at the first belay climbers had started scratching there names and a date into the rock...... I mean what kind of moron is still doing this kind of thing.
Its an interesting topic, though there is not a huge amount of other work out there (very little for winter climbing) so im not sure how well it would work as a lit review...
If you want to know any more PM me.
I just had a student do an essay on dolphin assisted therapy, something she thought she wanted to do. The science supporting it is poor and its very questionable (both in terms of positive impact and animal welfare), but to her credit so approached it open minded and ended up changing her views on it. I was a bit concerned about her writing about it as I thought she was too close to the subject to remain objective but she did it well.
