Crackwhore, you are right, maybe I should tune my C string down a bit, it was a little sharp. I'm not here to fight or argue. I was also in a really bad mood yesterday. But still, I aid climb, and I aid climb in the desert. I do everything I can to climb as clean as possible, and when I nail, I try to use the least destructive techniques. I never nail anything so that it will eventually go free. All that is is route manufacturing which is very unethical. I believe in the conservation of our earth, but I also know that many so called "environmentalists" are mis-educated and mis-informed about many of the things they are fighting for.

Hardcoredana- Thanks for what you said. I also agree that what I said doesn't just have to do with aid climbing, but all climbing. We should have respect for other peoples activities. I love all types of climbing, bouldering, sport climbing, trad climbing, occasionally free soloing, aid climbing, ice climbing and high altitude mountaineering. Its all good. Whatever people like, they should be respected by others. I just try to remember that everybody perceives the world in their own way, and who am I to judge people, because all I see is the world through my own eyes. And the thing that makes life interesting is that everybody is different. We all enjoy differen things, and we all do things for our own reasons.
But anyway, I am sorry I was harsh in my first reply to Crackwhores comment. I'm not hear to argue, just get other peoples opinions on things and I kindof lost track of that when I wrote what I wrote yesterday.

aiding is not about fun, it's about getting up something that you are not able to free climb.
