Great little article. Makes $5 per hold seem pretty cheap compared to making them yourself....economies of scale at work!

Dumb question, but I didn't see it: What's the purpose? I think I've heard of bird's nest soup before, but I'm not sure. Or do these have some other, medicinal or cosmetics use?

This is better than Discovery Channel! Nice to see a very interesting article outside the usual realm of recreational climbing.

I'm with roninthorne on this one...just as we climbers get our panties in a wad about jeopardizing access to places, we simultaneously spit on other people's property rights in an attempt to reclaim some romantic notion of being a Steinbeck-era vagabond. I still enjoyed the read, but just trying to keep it in perspective. With copycats, this could potentially make climbers look really bad.
