SO right now I'm pretty pissed because a week ago I had planned a climb with my friend. We talked on the phone for a while and I even took off work and didn't get my 40 hours of work in this week because I wanted to climb more. I got up super early to get ready and here I get a text from my friend saying hes hung over and can't come and climb.

Sorry I just needed to vent. i won't be climbing with him for a while.

i have almost lost a close friend over my alaska climbing plans this spring because i did not invite him, but he has either not shown up or has bailed at the last minute so many times in the past that i cannot risk it with a commitment as big as a ruth gorge trip. i am not the best climber on earth, and i am not planning anything more than stuff at my level (west side of dickey and a ski tour to the ruth gap), but when i plan something climbing-wise and someone does not show up, they simply are not invited the next time.

this aint ping-pong.

Two options :

(1) Forget your partner and go solo.

(2) Big Bird sez he's lookin' for a partner !

I won't do multi-day trips with rhyang anymore. The llama takes up too much space in the tent.

a) you don't really get along with them

and/or

b) they are not safe enough for your own liking.

I also don't like it when people are totally unreliable for bigger trips. When I commit, I usually don't bail unless there is a good reason (weather, injury, etc.).

When I have to dump my pack on a ledge, go back down, get my partner's pack and carry it up to the ledge, and then wait for my partner to climb up to the ledge where I'm sitting.

Arrogance

Arrogance in my opinion is the most dangerous thing some one can have on a mountain

Sometimes you have to unrope because you can't trust yourself. That, however, requires that you like your partner.


I think true climbing partnerships are way more intimate than marriages.
