Welcome to the disaster.
This is Jesse Bonin's Tahoe masterpiece "Welcome to The Future" V11. Unbelievable. This is a highly sought after area testpiece for many visiting climbers. The slopey granite feature is reminiscent of Font and the rock is perfect. This climb was number 25 on the DPM top 100 problems in the US (for what it's worth.)
The offender, who has since been arrested and fined $20,000, would not listen to climbers after we confronted him peacefully several times and told him this was illegal and just disrespectful to the land. Apparently he found buckets worth of Native American pottery artifacts.
We finally involved John Q. Law and the community came together and dealt with this douchebag legally and without violence. Apparently, he faces stiff fines up to $20,000 and jail time.
Hat tip to Brad Perry for really getting things done! Give him a handshake when you run into him at the Push wall and thank him for a job well done.
I can't wait until the grass grows back and this boulder is as beautiful as it once was. Such a line!
Seek perfection of character, respect others & Try Hard. Noah as usual.
