Headpoint is clearly for dorks, unfortunately we have to put up with them. The main difference is between ethics (which affect other people who use the rock) and style (which doesn't). Sounds like these guys didn't much style, but there ethics were good (ie not damaging the rock, not route hogging, etc...) Live and let live?

It all depends. How did you start climbing? Most people go along with people who know what they are doing, and follow them up routes, then start leading. But with climbing walls so prevalent, not everyone who goes to a wall will know someone who can do that. If these guys have taken the initiative, then plaudits for them taking the first steps. I've seen people doing similar at Traprain and Aberdour, and usually, if you given them half a chance, they start asking questions. Chances are they were hoping for pointers, not abuse.
