Topic - Should all Indoor walls be shut down ?

Petarghh - on 01 May 2013
In response to the current dry tooling debate.

Climbing walls are training a generation of climbers, making them strong, fit and psyched to take their new skills to the natural crags.

BUT

This influx of climbers dragged in by the glamorisation of rock climbing are causing vast damage to our cherished crags.

Loose blocks being removed
Unsightly chalk stains
Gear being placed repeatedly is wearing down placements
Cams have the potential to prise flakes off
Litter and excrement
Increased traffic polishing routes.

This must all stop now. Climbing walls are the training venue and therefore.

Remove the walls = stop the damage to our mountains and crags!
