Just saw this thread on Supertopos:

http://www.supertopos.com/climbing/thread.html?m=11718&f=0&b=0

Can anyone confirm or deny the rumors? First hand, factual accounts only, please. This not not a troll, nor an attempt by me to help propogate the rumor if it isn't true. Just looking for someone who might be able to verify or deny the report.

Thanks,

Ed

its bad enough to feed the trolls, but to feed them via two sites. that has to be close to a record

Pretty sure the boot is still there! I was at the base of the free blast last May when the BIG rock fall came off of pitch 29 on the nose- missed me by about 20'... scary as hell! Helped Hans and his partner- she got hit on the arm pretty bad!(I'm an emt so-blah I had to "work" on vacation) Almost took out a whole bunch of people!

Yep. Looks like I definitely got trolled. I really need to get a job where I do more than surf the internet all day...

Carry on. Don't mind me and my silly little revelations. I'll go talk with the voices in my head now.

What is a troll? Do they live under bridges and give goats a hard time?

I was totally sleeping, but the entire climb fell and left a brand-new route for the first party to go for it.

They should call it Dreamtiming.
