Climber trails

Climbers want to exude the persona of being environmentally friendly, and good stewards of the areas they use. Frequently we do a good job, picking up other's trash or carpooling to the crag maybe. But one thing we continue to get wrong is the trails we make and use. Climbers take a perverse pleasure in "climbers trails" - which means just walking in a straight line to whatever objective there is. This creates long-lasting erosion problems and terrible trails full of debris. So next time, use the switchback, and save the hillside.

Woweee! Nice trail

Or just cut the corner on this garbage
