This whole thread should be closed / removed.

well I don't think so... I found it interesting & entertaining. at least you guys can have a bit of a sense of humor about stuff, unlike the bolting/anti people.  ::)

speaking nof the old stodgy conway scene is there any fixed gear in the Cathedral cave.It is always a great place to aid in a rain storm.Alfonso thanks for making a safe descent for the Whitney G..Al thanks for seeing the humor in this whole situation as the rain is driving people nuts.And seriously if you really need to fill your egos climbing go to a climbing gym.Lots of fun on a rainy day and the approachs are killer.Ice climbing isn't that like dangerous ;D

ugh.
let me just clear some thing up for everyone who objects draws being hung for not even 24 hours.
the draws on flesh for lulu were mine. I hung them up last friday night intending to send the route on saturday. i was worried about leaving my draws up because i thought they would get dtolen. after talking to several people who have been climbing in rumney and other places for many years i decided that it would be ok to put them up past the crux, as the route has an easy section at the bottom.
so not even 24 hours later i came back to climb the route and my draws were gone. the people sitting at the base of holderness corner had my draws on a nice pile on their rope bag next to the rest of their gear! they said they had climbed the route and took them down for me. had i not gone to flesh for lulu first im not sure i would have ever seen them again. i put them back up and went to warm up.
to whoever said it could have been easy to take them down and put them back up: no it actually wouldnt. i spent a lot of time climbing the route myself in order to hang the draws and i was quite impressed that i did so. so taking the draws doen and putting them back up the next day or carrying up a stick clip would not be something easy. 
the draws were fairly new so there could not have been a question of them needing to be replaced.
i hope this clears things up. its pretty sad to see so many climbers arguing over something like this when most of you dont even know the whole story.
