Thanks Dr Feelgood. You are exactly right. It is all about my knarly sends. Also mojo is exactly right too. We should be able to lock out areas (like Farley).

I do believe that information sharers will always win. The fact tat landowners at Farley don't want routes posted, will eventually succumb to the fact that some people will find ways to share this information anyway (e.g. check out picassa.com).

If Rock Climbing wants to lock certain areas, while allowing the rest of us to freely add to areas that are not locked, then this would meet the intent of my request.
You probably don't know this, but it takes LOTS of people donating their time and money to organizations like the Access Fund, just to undo the damage done by selfcentered climbers such as yourself.

If an area has unique "access issues", like the one we are talking about, it SHOULD be, and remain locked.

Let's imagine for a moment that you didn't live at home with mom and dad, and actually had a place of your own, with a lot of land and big swell boulders in your rather large back yard... You allowed some locals to climb it, but asked NOT to have it posted on the net, since you really didn't want people in your back yard at ALL THE TIME, blasting tunes, leaving trash and beer bottles, and burning out as they left your land... Would you want us to lock it in our Database? What about some kid who climbs 5.8, demanding that he be allowed to put it on the net... What would you think about him?

When I ran things here, NOTHING was locked, except for areas like the one we are discussing... I agree with you that it should be that way (unlocked), but cetainly NOT for areas like this.
