No, nein, no. Sorry. Though your consternation w/ FOIC is obiouvs, and in some senses laudable, the thesis of your argument encourages growth of bureaucracy, instead of climbers taking care of their own sh*t.

In particular: the out-of-bounds camping, shoddy anchors and trails, rutted roads, etc. are all factors controllable by our community. IF anyone has the chutzpa to step in. Were the offending camping parties informed of their misdeeds and potential impacts?

What I was alluding to by (as you say) "management by chutzpa" would be, quite simply, to address issues personall, personably, and immediately with whoever might be throwing a wrench in the works. If, for example, several years ago some of the full time seasonal residents of the Bridger Jacks had been informed of their impact, maybe they would have simply moved up the road, and quieted down a bit. And then we wouldn't be under the watchful eye of the BLM.
