one of the best routes in mo has been spray painted! someone with less than poor "tagging" skills painted what appears to be WEED. if anyone has a good removal method let me know. Pheonix is all mid mo has, so lets try to clean it up.

Ask someone in your town's maintenance department. A friend of mine works for the city of Vancouver anti-graffiti dept. They use a solution that is reasonably environmentally friendly. It works great.

besides washing and scrubbing which depending on rock type may not work. i have heard that if you use plain yogurt (with active culture) on the spray paint, it will allow the natural lichen to grow over it and cover it.

10/8/05-
Todd, Bob, Justin and I brushed some acetone (i think thats how you spell it) on the "D" this saturday, took off alot of paint, but there is still very much to be done. Once we see what it looks like after it dries we will decide wether or not to take it all off with that.

Yeah.... and if you get hungry while climbing it, you can lick the rocks! :lol:

It really depends on the rock, but acetone or MEK usally works well and will evaporate rather quickly with out leaving extra residue. I've used these chemicals on Bishop Tuff and granite applied with steel and brass brushes but I wouldn't recommend the brushes on sandstone. I hope it helps.

on the positive side, if you get the "d" off, the climb will sound like a really good time.
