One more,

"Umm, you might want to put a piece of gear in now, you've got more than enough rope to deck".

Reminds me of climbing in southern AZ.

"Now you're free!"

...calls my partner, a disturbing amount of feet below, as my last piece pops out of the shit-rock.


Love this topic. Every two years it starts and every two years I love the responses.

Three that come to mind, said by various partners:

"You might as well move!"

"I don't want to come back here...."

"Can you hold up? I really need to rest for a bit here."

The guy said real climbers don't use tape.

This guy bled, that day, profusely. He also failed to send, on top rope, what the pussies led for him.

A few weeks later on an internet site, not this one mind you, the same climber lectured others he taped up because he didn't want scabs on his hands putting off people at work.

Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha!

Grasshopper learn, HARD WAY.

THEN TAKE CREDIT FOR ADVICE.

Last year in the Torino hut I watched two guys who wanted to climb on the rock spires near it the next day, tape their hands in the evening and then cut the tape off like a glove so they could "slip" into it the next day. Good idea thought I.

My girlfriend made me throw away my rather pungent tape-gloves from Indian Creek when I returned home :( . I've heard that some people keep their tape-gloves for years and just replace the wrist-wraps...

Not climbing related per se, but so true - came from my friend on Facebook this morning: "Summer, like LA, is better as a concept than a reality."

When working on anchor building with a guide, if it looked good he would say "I'd fall on that." (reminds me of "I'd hit that") Always thought it was funny so I adopted it.

not much of a phrase, but a square kick in the ass for me as i just started a training blog for climbing:

mark twight, everybody:
The Internet poser's world is hazy: he passes off sporting sub-disciplines for the real thing, hints at things he might do, under-reports the results of things he has done, foregoes events that offer genuine competition, short-strokes reps in the gym, refuses to use objective measuring tools (perhaps to evade the truth), and contrives virtual challenges through which he draws an apparent association with the legitimate event and its participants. This shit makes me sick.
