I have noticed that there are quite a few missing nametags at the bottom of routes. There are also some that appear to have been unsuccessfully chisled off. If anyone has any information regarding who is doing that please contact the SCC and the local authorities.Ppeople in this area are determined to ruin this local gem that we have here and the SCC as well as local climbers work very hard on this bluff. There is no need for vandalism.

the plaques at the bottom of the routes with the name and difficulty have been removed with what looks like a chisle.

im sorry to hear about the vandalism, but wouldnt putting a plaque on the stone constitute vandalism to the stone itself? ive never been anywhere where routes are named and marked with plaques. just a guessing game with a guide book to as what is what. kinda like someone chopping bolts on a route that was put up in a traditional style and later bolted because someone coulndnt send it traditionally.

It's a climber owned piece of land (SCC) so if they want to put plaques on it they can. It's no more vandalism than blasting it to put in an Interstate...

The tags are no bigger than the anchors. You have obviously never been to the bluff or you would know what I am talking about.

I think it's weird too but they do it in a lot of privately owned areas in the SE.

Off Topic - I read somewhere about how there were snakes while you climb the route???? Is that true? I live in Memphis and we keep looking for better places to climb besides driving 6 hours. Anyone give me positive reviews about this place?

Besides why put another damn hole in the rock you are already bolting the routes. Do you really need a fuckin name tag to tell you where to go. ROOKIES
THIS SHIT NEEDS TO STOP HERE AND NEVER MAKE IT OUT OF THIS CRAG.
FUCKING LAME
Are climbers really becoming this stupid.
SEE WHAT SPORT/GYM CLIMBING HAS DONE
ARE YOU PEOLPE HAPPY NOW?

You're ranting about something that is over 30 years old and started long before sport climbing and gyms. Sure, not everywhere and all areas, but far more than your post suggests of "never making it out of this crag".

subantz seen this kind of stuff a few places. You are correct, it does seem unnatural to glue plaques on rock or to draw route grades on rock, but people do what they feel is right on their property. I've even seen the grades etched in moss once. Crazy

....LAME SH T has been happening for a long time. Bet we look back someday and say damn those pitons are bad for rock - oh wait that's already happend....

I've been bolting small name plaques at the base of the routes at Potrero Chico for some time now and everybody loves them. They are small, unobtrusive and really help people find their way around and make sure they are on the right route.

This is also being done at many other sport climbing areas throughout the world so get used to it.
If you don't sport climb then you don't need to get your panties in a bunch over it.

I noticed this the past weekend. I was pretty sad to see that happen. I don't climb there too often but it seems as whenever we're leaving at night there's always really shady people coming in... who are certainly not there to climb. I guess it would be cool to have a little plate that said "baby i'm 10 inches long"

Its not another hole you idiot. I know the people that made the bluff what it is today and ignorant pieces of shit like you are the reason why local crags turn into crap. I know all of the local climbers so i will know who you are when i see you. This land is private property therefore you will be arrested for destruction of personal property if i see you. I have spoken to most local climbers and they agree with me and will do the same. This crag will be closed to the public if idiots like you continue to ruin it. Have fun being lame as hell the rest of your life. i hope it works out.
