Hi Ben.

I’m not on committee at the moment. Hardly even climbed this year, but I was certainly around while Dena was negotiating access to the quarry.

None of was actually pleased with what DEC allowed us but the decision was that a few crumbs was better than nothing.

Would you rather the committee had decided not to accept DEC’s position as a matter of principle and have the quarry closed to climbing completely as it was?

Just curious.

I can assure you it was not the CAWA committee’s decision to have the quarry restricted to 6 weekends a year and only to CAWA members. We were asking for unrestricted access for all and it took months of patient negotiation by DEna to get what little we got.

There, does that make your nose feel better?
