Climbing...Finally Safe for Everyone

Post by B-rock » Tue Apr 30, 2013 12:53 am

Everyone is going to love this one...a must read!

http://www.dpmclimbing.com/articles/vie ... e-everyone

There are some great quotes in this article...one of my favorites:
"I just kind of go out and climb. Awareness and responsibility for my own personal safety is the last thing on my mind at the crag. I'm there to have a good time!"

Enjoy :)

Soon it will be crowded with MeetUp groups and concession stands :) Nice to see climbing become so mainstream.

Is the April 1st publishing date not a big enough hint?

Hilarious... and hard to believe people actually think its real, hope they aren't looking at The Onion for their news!

Sometimes, sadly, The Onion is more accurate then the actual news....

I all seriousness, accidents would be minimized by palcing auto-belays and permanent boulder pads at the crags. Then climbing would be open to everyone and the sport would become really huge - like it should be. Everyone should climb - it's the American way after all.
