It's mostly location information I'm referring to as "details". My argument being that without precise location information there's always ambiguity and/or plausible deniability.

Mostly agree, although there are historical situations (e.g. 3 Sisters) where I could be persuaded that the information has value beyond just being a guide for climbers who want to climb it.

But in this specific case that doesn't apply, so the outcrop (deliberately) doesn't have much more detail than a "climbing here is banned, and it's choss anyway, so please stay away to preserve good relations with the land manager". The question at hand is whether its precise location should be listed or not - does that result in more climbers staying away more of the time or not.
