Just wondering if anyone in the valley has a room for rent?  I have a friend in town who is interested in renting a room in a house or a small apartment.

Thanks

I am curious to hear some opinions. here is my question to all you fine folk: is it appropriate to be bolting any boulders that are located in an established bouldering area? should we respect and protect these limited resources as we do our cliffs and crags?

Boulder are primarly a large rock (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boulder. So, a crag is not a boulder and few of it had more than 20 feet.

Bouldering, the activity, as define contemporary is: "Bouldering is a form of rock climbing that is performed without the use of ropes or harnesses" http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bouldering.

use as a training to mountaineering and free climbing, bouldering evolve into a very hard ethic of climbing with is own cotation (V-1 to V-...).

So, If you don't use a rope...you don't need bolt...

Depends on how big it is. there are 3 and 4 bolt climbs that people seem to enjoy.

I have seen this done (bolts on top for tr anchors) seems like a discrete way to enjoy a high ball .

Depends on the area, but generallly no.  I am putting up highball boulder problems around the Farley area and placing a couple of glue-in wave bolts hidden over the top.  I am not the first to do it here, so seems okay.  That way, you can TR if you want to, and boulder it if you want to and hopefully nobody gets killed. 

We put up a V5 highball right next to the trail ("Larger Than Life") and it had chalk all over it when I hiked by today, so the boulderers seem to be liking it.

Joshua tree, Buttermilks, Hueco, Pway, smuggs, etc all have, boulders, trad and bolts. So no, just like we don't have onlyl bolted cliffs or TR only cliffs around here we shouldn't have bouldering only areas. I see what you are trying to get at, but instead of condemning people for putting up lines on un recorded climbs, maybe you should focus on getting boulderers to better record their FA's.
