...and my note:

"So you openly tell cachers to violate the rules of the MDC just because a
 cache happens to be there? Way to represent caching to agencies who 
have the power to ban caching in all of their areas! I cannot believe 
you'd even suggest that."

The problem with your position is that openly flaunting the rules CAN affect 
others. The MDC has the power to ban geocaching on all their lands if they 
choose to. Is that really worth acting like a "maverick"?

This is my note on the cache page.
I will cast a dissenting vote on this one. Leave it alone! Okay, it's not in 
compliance with MDC regulations (read that as the lawyer rule). Note- a 
regulation is not a law, it's usually a CYA. I used to work for the Gummint, I 
know this. This cache has been there since at least 2003. Surely, the boys and 
girls at MDC have noticed, oh ropes and such, during this time. Look at the 
cast of characters that have made the climb. It includes most of the SLAGA 
elite. It's a tall rock, it's meant to be climbed by us (well, maybe not me, 
but I would if I could), for cat's sake, kids make the climb. It's an oldie, 
but goodie. Cachers, go for it. The Department of Conservation works for you.
I am a maverick and don’t agree with most laws, regulations, rules, and other 
such nonsense.  As citizens and sovereigns, we can and should do most anything 
we want to do.  As long as you’re not hurting someone else, do it.  Of course, 
if you fall and break your neck, it’s your dime.  Don’t expect me and everyone 
else to pay your way.

Two separate needs archived logs and nothing has been done?
You can't go after this cache legally, but it's still listed? I don't 
understand. Is there something behind the scenes for which I am unaware?
