What NOT To Do When Developing

On Friday as Drew, Will and I were wandering up FairAngel Valley (the valley to the right of the diamond), we came upon this boulder:

This is great example of how not to clean a top out.  This boulder has maybe 3-4 problems, and I have a distinct memory of climbing several lines on it with Tanya before the top was butchered.  The problem with cleaning like this is the visual impact to other user groups.  A lot of different people use Hatcher Pass for many different recreational uses.  If we want to continue climbing here without access issues, we need to be aware of how we impact the area for other user groups.  In this case the moss didn’t need to be cut back 4 feet to be able to climb the problem, and the visual impact is significant.  Let’s be smart about how we do development.
