Addressing the names on the papers, Thaddeus told the group to not leave trash on the mountain in future

He wrote: "[Whoever] you are, we never know if this is a new trend for taking a pictures of your names (or other people's names) on the mountain, but please bring this [down] next time. Don't just simply leave it up here (sic)."

He also reminded the public to avoid littering and to keep the environment clean

"To you people out there, if you guys [plan] to scale the mountain please don't do this. What's going up have to going down. Take nothing but photographs, keep nothing but memories, leave nothing but footprint (sic)," he added.
