“Warning to all climbers in SLC area. Today, me and 2 friends were on the upper ledge (rapping 4th pitch) of Pentapitch when multiple rounds were fired at us from a green sedan on the side of the vaults road, near gate B. Of the 15 Shots, ~5-7 whistled past us and hit rock around us. The other shots were fired and nearly hit climbers on Stifflers Mom.
Police are investigating and have found casings.

What the hell? While you are climbing up a cliff face?
Might as well say, “just have to hang in there until the idiot stops firing.”
“What is wrong with some people?” is the real question!
