In the last few weeks, an enormous controversy about red tagging routes has sprung up. People who have never red tagged, never bolted and never scooped a project suddenly have unbending opinions on the matter. We at P&C, who have spent years doing all three as well as decades in the study of morality and ethics (Kant, Kirkegaard, Derrida, St. Paul, Wittgenstein and Aristotle for the philistines out there) have come up with an unflexible, unbending set of rules about this matter(and pretty much all other controversies in climbing “ethics”).

      Nice rule. Should work. But I resent your having to mention Derrida in this argument. Took me years to get him out of my system after grad school.

        I think a far more important issue than red tagging is wtf happened to CCGOTW? Are we out of cute climber girls? Maybe we could have “Climber Girl I’d Hit If It Was Last Call” or something. Just an idea.

          Yeah, fuck kant and his universalized ethics. That works much better.
