Don’t Ask Me Any Questions, I Wont Tell You No Lies

I got to thinking the other day about the progression of this site, and how many people have told me they are grateful for all the information on here. It’s pretty rewarding to know that people are getting enjoyment out of something that I have created, especially because I do this with my free time and make no money from it.

One thing I struggle with sometimes is how much info to put on here. There are a lot of local crags that you wont find information about, for various reasons. Some are new, some are older, some have questionable access, some are probably better off as locals’ only spots. On one hand, I want to share the information with as many people as possible, because I am psyched on the climbing in our area, and want others to enjoy it. On the flip side, with publicity comes crowds, and possible access issues, like at Thompson Creek. In that case, it didn’t matter the information was available on here, because everyone and their mother had already heard about it and been out there by the time we got a topo together, but you get the idea.

For now I guess I’ll continue to be selective about the information that goes on here, and hope that people continue to treat all these areas with respect. Climbing is coming under more and more scrutiny these days, how we act as a group will shape how land managers view and interact with climbers in the future.

Climb on.
