"All I see is a bunch of people bitching about someone chopping their own routes to reduce the damage being done to an area of Franklin."

To set the record straight for the conversation, they were not all his routes. However, as I said before, there seems to be a method to choosing some of the additional routes.

"Mike has every right to chop routes he put up."

Is this really true? Does a FAist really "own" a route forever, or are they given to the climbing community? Some of these lines are obvious. Are we going to have different bolts or bolt holes for every person/city/club/whatever to climb on? If someone restores the routes will they be rechopped?

Trying to respectfully discuss... lemme know what you guys think.
