Re: whale of a tale
- Not a troll TR. Remember the writer's effort appeared in Summitpost where similar tales of outdoor experiences regularly appear.
Again what caught my eye in both TRs was the evidence of previous
treks from decades ago. I suppose those climbers and scramblers didn't have to deal with homeowner associations as they set out for the distant heights. The buying of Lot 25 was not a concern for them.
To bring this perhaps full circle, here's another recent TR from the same writer in which he deals with the problem of accessing park land on the approach to Kinesava:

You put new routes for others to be climbed. We are a community - if you are not going to share, why scream you have it? It's like me caring cookies to a meeting and telling everyone how great they are but not letting anyone touch them. Just my 2c. Maybe I am just an open kind of guy that shares everything he has with his friends.
