Hey everyone-
I was bouldering in rocklin today. Later, when i went to go check up on the longer walls in the back, the ones you usually need a rope for, I noticed white paint splattered all over the wall and more paint and tons of glass in the staging swamp area. I wasn't climbing on the wall, but i am concerned this will make it much more difficult, and the mess makes it obviously an embarrassment to us all. I live pretty close to the wall and would like to clean the paint up thats dried to the wall- is there a certain way to do this, without damaging the rock?
Thanks and let me know if you need pics, or help.
Andy

I've climbed the tall routes since the paints been there and in my opinion the paint didn't make the climbs any harder, albeit it is unsightly. Also the paint makes it a little bit harder to see some of the more subtle foot holds.
