Just back and was pretty disappointed to see how ethics still seem to be slowly going backwards out there, despite much clear advice in the guidebooks. Many boulderers had no towel or doormat or suitable bouldering mat tops to clean their feet. There is a mass over-use of chalk, including on obvious footholds (!??) and many unecessary tick marks. Some old french locals just got laughed at when they questioned some particulary blatant abusers on the chalk front. Conditions were pretty mint but increasing polish and chalk gunk made some old favorites seem harder irrespective.
