Does lacking a woman lead to dangerous soloing?

Right now, I'm happier pushing myself and I know that I will more likely fall then not) so its not a time for soloing, but I go in cycles and I may go back to a period of time of soloing.


I think the bottom line is that people solo for different reasons, and not all of it represents self-destructive behavior. For me I find the intense focus meditative (similar to lane splitting on my motorcycle). It's one of the few times that my mind isn't filled with a whirlwind of thoughts. I also enjoy the speed and freedom of movement it affords.

I know my limitations though and I ONLY get on stuff that is well within my range of confidence!!!!

Shoes, Chalk, Sunglasses, boom box and skills.


Always serious stuff. :wink:

Climbing still is dangerous, you just don't go to the right areas. For instance, at Malibu yesterday I almost got hit with falling debris and falling gear 3 times. The place is full of idiots from the gym. They were all safe though because they had their helmets on!
