Bill: I've entered the hotline into my phone...you know so when I'm doggin a route and I see bottles flyin I can just tap my ear piece and shaazzam, instant police action without confrontation.
I hope the bottle breaking does die off so the area can be cleaned up and stay clean, these are wishful thoughts, people will always party there...we just need them to party without the needles, condoms, car parts, trash, bottles and cans (wait...can you actually party without those things?.. i tried once without the car parts and there was something missing).
Yes, I did bail out on plans for Beacon to go climbing at the Butte, but I did have a fabulous time and now that i've climbed my second crack climb in my entire life, I feel sufficently prepared for anything beacon can throw at me...except anything above 5.8...oh, is there anything...?ha!
I am trying to get out there in the near future, if you have a lead, let me know. As for my ass hitch-hiking; as a transplant eastcoaster I still fear three things: open spaces without trash and noise, people who say hi to me and don't know me, being picked up off of the side of the road with 20lbs of climbing gear in my pack and not a clue as to where I'm going. I did read On The Road in highschool, but I was high, so I can't remember a damn thing...and I am not sure it would help anyways, in our post 9-11 world. Maybe some day though...maybe...
Oh yeah; who wants to climb tomorrow? The BUTTe or elsewhere.
