    Brian,

    you couldn't have said it better. When are we going to go climb?

    I didnt realize the guy was such a jerk. I guess things change abit since they already had the rule and he found a loop hole. From the article it sounded like he was more innocent than he really was. I dont have a problem with NP Rangers but the system as a whole leaves a bad taste in my mouth, but this guy sounds like he was trying to stir up trouble. I see where Patagonia is coming from now. I wouldn't keep him on either if I were them.

    Ignorance is bliss. Until Brian from SLC gives the facts.
    The man thong is wrong.

    Ahhh...climbing. Spent last week in Red Rocks. This week through the weekend I'll be in Bend, OR. Always something...but...yeah, we'll have to get out. 'Tis the post work climbing season, methinks.

    Kinda interesting, this whole Delicate Arch deal first hit the net when Steve Baron, who used to be the weather guy on Fox news, broke the story on the TGR website. I think he had his own website as well with some stuff on it too...but...not sure that site is around anymore.

    He's in Chi town now. See his bio, and the last stuff...

    Curiously, his original thread on the Delicate Arch deal seems to have disappeared from TGR's website (??).
