TRAM boulders have been attacked by a no or low ethics entity. My long time project has been pryed apart with a BLUE handled screw driver. The perps left the tool behind (why?) after they dismantled a possible V12-ish boulder grip. further updates and pix to follow......

any info appreciated

This flat out SUCKS!

The Tram offers (IMHO) the best bouldering options in So Cal. There are plenty of strong climbers heading up there on a regular basis. Every season harder problems (and last season's undone projects) get sent. Chipping makes no sense whatsoever in an arena such as this. Although this sounds as if it has made the problem harder (or impossible) instead of easier as chippers often aim for.

And for those that have issues with Joe (Oldskool) - get over them. The guy cranks and has been at the forefront (along with a handful of others) of Tram development for the last several years. He's one of the good guys up there.

To Joe: I hope the project still goes - good luck getting to the bottom of this.

the holds that were pryed off had been pulled on by some 5 different climbers, with none of us noticing any loose holds AT ALL; we can only wonder what prompted this. Again, any info is appreciated, so we can hopefully somehow stop this from occuring again.
Socalbolter: I think the problem might still go, if Dan Woods or some such person gets up here again. Its is harder now, but MIGHT still go. \
ps: people have issues with me? they never tell me about them....

Is this really how the youth of today compose sentences? Frown
This seems to make your point with very low writing skills or maybe this is some sort of "text message" style of writing that the world is coming to.

Since this thread was dragged from the dead...what is the arena where it is acceptable?
