 Bad usage by descenders  

Noticed a number of climbers and a lot of evidence that folks are using a shortcut east of the main ascent switchbacks above the trailhead, to descend. This not only looks ugly on the slope, but most were sliding on their butts causing a lot of slippage of the rock. Over time this will only get uglier and give the owner (this IS a privately owned mountain) cause to close this mountain to public access. Please folks, use a little trail discipline!
