I was wondering who qualifies as a climber in your book? Is it one of those spoiled looking little boys that used to take their family van to yosemite for a year, smoke pot, and these days they spray black and white photos all over ST? Or make a 10 page pornographic thread (on SP) about some little ice climb with scary runouts they did over the winter? The ones that talk about the 'old times', 'dirtbagging,' and how none of these inferior gym rats with sticky rubber out there can relate to them? Do you think Honnold is a climber (he DOES climb in the gym)? Sorry, but a lot of people in the world today (i am sure back than too), cannot simply drop taking care of their parents, job, education, and become a real climber according to your high standard. Wish we all weekend warriors had a chance to do so, and be like you, a real cli...
I do not qualify anyone as a climber till they climbed Cassin Ridge in a push, by the way. So thank god I am talking to an equal clim...here : )
nice post VM. has got to be one of the best, ever... on any forum. i can't figure out why you would even bother with me. you must have bigger fish to fry. your wit is oh so witty...
hmmmm, but i'd say your attempt at sarcasm is more of a spotlight on your ignorance. i wonder how many of us climbers are there for our parents, have a damn good job, higher education, AND were NEVER a weekend warrior hiker like VM???
Oh no, badass internet climber does not like my humor and called me a hiker...what am I gonna dooooo!!!???
Chief doesn't think I have a chance of ever climbing OZ! Oh no.
I am very happy with climbing and hiking I do. I do it for myself, not for some internet character to consider me a climber or whatever else. I do not label myself personally, because I like multiple outdoor activities. I enjoy being out there- both pushing own limits, and relaxing at a lake. Hope both of you are having as much fun this season as me ; )
