Re: Attention New School climbers

First off, I am a rude asshole, maybe that's why Jimmy lets me climb with him sometimes. I usually don't get as worked up as Will though, but I sympathize. Last March on a cold and rainy day, I headed to the roof section at Chica Bonita where there was a gaggle of college kids. All the routes 'cept...

Re: Attention New School climbers

Actually, you didn't go to school that's the problem, your dumb and don't know how to handle people in a less confrontational, strategic manner that leaves everyone satisfied , not just your limp dick ego.

Re: Attention New School climbers

Go climb someplace else then, you come off as a crusty old timer and your ego is actually way worse than the people you are criticising. Like JR said most people are comfortable climbing on other peoples draws and everyone doesnt need to conform to YOUR style of acceptable climbing, things change a...

Re: Attention New School climbers

the new school mentality .... 1)just avoid that problem it will get better. 2) make yourself look better by belittling the OP and avoid the issue Like i said i've never saw a bigger bunch of pussies.

I dont know how we went from banning pitons to drilling bolts where ever one pleases. Onsightin...

Re: Attention New School climbers

If so, thank you for your service. They will look back fondl...
