Jay, do you think you should clean up your tics after a send?

In a sport area, not really. I think most sport climbers would rather have tick marks up than not. In terms of getting the redpoint quicker, they probably do more good than harm. Sport climbing is mainly a redpointing activity, and it should go without saying (though nothing does when arguing with gumbies) that getting a redpoint in fewer tries is desirable (no matter how good the movement is :roll:). Redpointing is not onsighting, and once you've decided to go for a redpoint, you usually want all the beta you can get, and tick marks are just a form of beta.
