Roadtrip Questions

Lately, I have spent quite a bit of time driving. The wide open spaces got my mind going. These questions were bouncing around in my head.

Is a first ascent for the first ascentist or the community?

Who decides where a line goes?

Does better beta include different start holds?

How many starts can a line have?

Why does the climbing community accept the grade of a first ascent before its repeated?

Why doesn't climbing companies put clauses in their contacts that require community service, i.e. developing areas, for their pro climbers?

Do you have answers?

Do you have questions?
