Sounds like something Simplekin would do :lol:

A 7 foot jump. The ankle was not sprained but broken: dislocated fracture. Marines are on salary anyway.


It probably wasn't the Marines rescuing your socially retarded ass, but regardless, that's a nice attitude you have toward people who risk their lives to save those of others.

Did they come close enough to tell you their schools and GPAs?

Simpkin, I tossed the second rope to you while you were stuck on 5.6 slab, near the summit of Cathedral peak in Tuolumne. That was the second time that day someone tossed you a rope.
Its not ok for you to lie about this. You got in way over your head twice that day. Whaterv, I dont think its safe for you to do that, but the real thing is you are lying and denying that you needed a rope to yank on twice. You need to learn what your limits are, part of that is admitting where your skills are, that includes NOT LYING about getting rescued.

Since I coined the term "Simplekin," I demand a $1 royalty every time someone else uses it online.

Send me your PayPal info.

And you pay the fees.

I think this might be it ...



As a side note, the tag on Simkin’s helicopter rescue video indicates this occurred in January 2016 but was not posted until August 28, 2017. In fairness, why is this a big deal now? Not saying that his interactions with fellow climbers that day were acceptable nor I am suggesting that he shouldn’t be more grateful toward the professional rescuers who saved him. But the level of ridicule here seems pretty high for an incident that occurred nearly two years ago. Not that piling on isn’t fun when deserved ... but still.
