Do you “toss your cookies” before a climb?

Postby Guyzo » Wed Sep 16, 2009 5:05 pm

On another thread, DMT commented on sleeping the night before a big climb.

I also have a hard time sleeping before a “big one”

But I will confess: Sometimes I puke my guts out before getting on a big scary climb. :oops: :lol: :lol:

Anybody else a member of the “purge club”?

I sometimes have trouble sleeping before something that I know will scare me the next day & once I puked at the top of a pitch (squeeze chimney on The Priest in Moab). Have not yet puked before a climb but there's always that next one :)

Never barfed before a climb unless I was actually sick or hungover. I have had the dry heaves after a climb tho. As soon as I hit the Eldo parking lot, I always have to poop.

LOL Only thing I know is to avoid pizza at all times the day before. It makes my guts pretty upset for most of the following day.

My furnace needs food to generate energy, so I try not to blow chunks unless I know it will be mostly gatorade. ;)

Makes me think of being on a small plane (puddle-jumper) during a thunderstorm with severe turbulence. The bumpiness may not bother you, but after half the people around you start retching, it becomes really hard not to follow suit.

Somehow I'd forgotten the pie-eating contest.

An up-tight stomach is a natural reaction to anxiety. But if you eat right, you shouldn't throw up in action.

It could be that your stomach already has too much acid. So a little adreneline will push it over the top. That's my problem.

So I have a prescription for "Prevacid" (Lansoprazone). It it works better than Rolaids, and is cheaper

Dingus, your buddy Burl has gotta get that "Prevacid".

Or switch to a better beer, like "Upper Canada Rebellion" (even if its label sucks).
