Cheating and climbing

Postby snoopdhani » Sat Jan 23, 2010 5:48 pm

So I was talking to a climbing buddy and told him that I had had pneumonia for 10 days and my doctor had me on an inhaler Albuterol, and when I went hiking my lungs felt so "open. once I was healed. " I said it was pretty funny how fast I went when on an inhaler. My doctor has since said I might have asthma, so that is another story. Anyway this buddy of mine then told me that he fucking shoots EPO, to climb mountains. WTF i said. I told him that he was doping. He said i was to. I said bullshit. I had pneumonia and I was given an inhaler so i did not die, and he is injecting a drug to create whatever the fuck it does. He hung up on me, and told me I was like jose canseco!!!!!!! ASSHOLE.

Why would it be cheating if someone is using a drug to enhance his / her climbing? There are now rules? When did this happen?

Diamox is about as performance enhancing to the acclimitised as is aspirin to the non-ached.

I only brought it up because I use it at mid-altitude and don't want to come across as being holier-than-thou. :wink:


Fair enough. I only think it is cheating if someone is less than transparent in how they climbed.

Buhl wasn't the only one to have amphetamines in his kit-bag seventy-eighty years ago.

Using boots is cheating. All climbing should be done barefoot.

Blowing out adrenals and such w/stimulants. He get's a rush now. He gets performance now. He feels good now. But pays later.

i don't climb so I don't know, but I figured when you're doing technical rock climbing, you are slowed down by getting the right holds and all that - not fatigue (if you're well trained). is that wrong? it seems like you good get sufficient cardiovascular training that it wouldn't be a limiting factor (and no need for EPO)
