-Well they asked us to provide a list of all our gear (down to every single nut / biner) and when it has been purchased. -okay can be done
-Then they wanted to know when and where any single piece of gear has been used. -Obviously ridiculous to do with trad gear which is in use for top-rope setup since years
-Next an insurance guy had to come out to inspect all our gear (just the average pencil pusher who has no idea about climbing)
-Overnight trips became a no-go as camping is too dangerous. - Makes araps and gramps trips a bit hard
-Risk assessments had to be made regarding the impact of the environmental noise in the national park on the trip participants
...and so on and so on...As soon as we fulfilled one requirement they came up with something new.

In the end, it looked like they just wanted to bury us underneath bureaucracy to avoid having to deal with us doing any trips....sadly they succeeded...
