When parsing arguments it's sometimes useful to clarify all of the factual assertions first. Doing so can remove extraneous clauses and helps ensure nobody is responding to contentions that were never made. Simkin, I'm trying to follow the logic of the argument, but I confess I'm getting a bit lost at the start. Admittedly I'm a bit tired, and I'm going to be quite embarrassed if I've missed this one, but where is the suggestion that you free solo Amphitheater Chute? This may simply be a case of people talking past one another without any points of contention genuinely at issue.
