Article: Stick Clip Tricks for Sport Climbers
"Sport Climbing Ethics" is a contradiction in terms. Stick clipping is no weaker than drilling holes in rock and placing permanent bolts. It's a sport, not a life-or-death struggle. You boneheads that spout ethics concerning sport climbing are ridiculous. Go climb some offwidth or something and by all means, free-solo it. Anything else is cheating. Gotta make sure our ethics are sound, right? Or, we could live and let live and ignore other peoples ethics when they have absolutely no effect on us. Too bad it's never gonna be that easy.

And thanks for the terrific beta, Jay. These are great tricks.
