I never said it was. In fact, I am an advocate of the opposite - in case you havent encountered my earlier rants on here about how just because people want easy sport, doesn't mean we should make it, for the simple reason that it doesn't exist because easy rock is accessible via learning trad climbing and these people should either learn trad or start climbing harder.
