Ahh, but you cannot account for the unexpected. Climbers get injured, they catch the flu and they have time bombs coursing through their blood like high blood pressure, cancer, etc. Uninsured cost those of us who pay taxes a lot more than medical cards.

These are generally the dirtbags with no health insurance or 401k who I get to pay for if they get injured. Not impressive. Wow, how does that work without having prior welfare benefits? And how frequently does that happen? I would think that you're spending more on people with a slothful lifestyle...

When I hear people spraying at the cliff or anywhere loud enough so everyone knows they are a self-proclaimed badass, I roll my eyes. These are generally the dirtbags with no health insurance or 401k who I get to pay for if they get injured. I get it. You can't compete against other climbers so you...

I too agree with Piggy on this very small unimportant issue (I have to qualify agreements with piggy, it's like explaining that a climb is my warm up). Seriously though, if I feel the need to explain that I'm coming back from an injury, or took time off or didn't sleep last night or didn't eat right...

I want to give one vote for no more bolts on RoCS. The crack is frequently wet at the start and I really don't believe this is something someone can assess from the ground. I recommend we all simply try to convince people to stick clip when we see them on the route. Have you been on this route? Can...

Ascentionist is a troll. Even the name "ascentionist" is so pompous that it's your first clue.

Putting another bolt below the current first one (something that would be reach-able from a good stance on the ledge) would sure make it easier to start this route without a stick-clip. The first bolt is really high up right now, so not even every stick clip can reach it. TROCS is a popular route i...

I don't have one currently. But my favorite is "America is a republic NOT a democracy." It tells me the driver is a dumbass since our nation is classified as both. Actually The United States IS supposed to be a republic, NOT a democracy... at least it was never intended by our founding fathers to b...

They are different but I cannot recall off the top of my head. The website should have all of the info.
