Can one of you artistic types make me a bumper sticker that says "Free El Cap" that looks just like a "Free Tibet" sticker. That would kick so much ass.

Hundreds--if not thousands of people.

How about the West Face? It has 20 pitches and goes free at 5.11.

That's not bad. I've got a photoshopster who's probably willing to clean up my version. What I posted was an actual free tibet sticker that I modified in Paint. Now she's going to clean it up.

I like your idea, it's probably easier to create a whole new graphic than to modify one. The sun needs to take up more space on the bottom and the letters need to be white with a black border.

Actually the sun needs to be replaced with a silhouetteof the Nose Smile The stripes and type should be more than enough to allude to Tibet and the silhouettewill help clarify the message. Maybe tomorrow when I get back to work and my fancy "computator" with all the bells and whistles
