compclimber,
will gorilla glue hold rock to rock though?
..im pretty sure epoxy will hold plastic to rock, but i'll be damned if im spending $300 on holds just so some little smartass kid can come along and wreck the route. id rather spend $40 on the right glue and just glue stones to a brick wall.

During one particularily cold winter my and my friend glued these limestone pieces which were a waste product from this quarry, onto the concrete pillars of a train bridge. I think it was too cold though when we put them on because they didn't stay very well. Some are still there to this day but some came off as we yanked on them which was not fun at all.
