So, I changed the title slightly and made it a sticky so we can keep adding to this thread, rather then creating a new one every week.

I lowered off of a single open shut because the second one wouldn't accept the rope. I rationalized it though. I thought, hey I tie a bowline. It is a tricky knot* that I might screw up given another chance.

Wait a minute. This thread is about being an idiot on the "weekend". This went down on a Monday. Forget it.

*Tricky Knot. Is it me or does the Bowline or Double Bowling tie differently when hanging from the anchors on steep routes?

The belay card army was out in full force on Sunday.

We saw:

A girl hold herself up by grabbing the rope above her atc while she unclipped from the anchor. (her partner did have her on a fireman's, at least...)

Numerous counts of bushwhacking/trail erosion, including one dude who actually argued with us for calling him out on it, despite the fact he was still standing directly behind a barrier rope with a "This is not a trail" sign attached... :roll:

A person putting on/taking off her chalkbag by pulling it over her head.

A super annoying group of people who kept yelling "Spring break 2009! Woo!!!"






Oh wait. That last one was us. :lol:

sounds ok to me. We got rained out pretty bad on sunday, but at least there were chicks at the crag with boobs too big to climb hard.

What about the spaniards blasting samba music at Military on Tuesday?

Or the girl who was standing 20 ft behind Fuzzy, anchored to the tree 30 ft behind Fuzzy belaying (with an ATC and prussik) some guy who was fighting tooth and nail to get to the second bolt. she was going to anchor to the tree next to Fuzzy, but the climber suggested she take a few steps back.

Good luck with the soft catch, pal.

sounds like a bunch of pussies complaining in here to me. It's funny how people feel much more comfortable in their home over the internet calling people out, than actually doing it on the spot. quit bitching and climb. Safety issues is one thing, but all this other stuff is just pointless rambling.
