Shame the Whipper

Post by captain static » Sun Jan 14, 2018 1:11 pm

This most recent weekend whipper posted on Rock & Ice http://rockandice.com/videos/weekend-wh ... 5-12a-rrg/ displays a shameful show of disrespect for everything the Webers, FOMV board members, and MV developers have put into making climbing possible at the Muir Valley Preserve. The poster of the video apparently works at Planet Rock and one would think that they would know better. What penance sayeth you should they pay for this shame?

Banned from Muir until he serves his one day penance of endentured servitude helping me replace worn gear and bolts in the valley.

Alternatively, one day hammock patrol or perhaps 50 lashings from PAS used as a man thong.

Sentence is Servitude, 6-8 hours of service. They both need to be collected.

Mandatory trail day participation?

A requirement to give a 20 min presentation about Rules of climbing at Muir Valley at Michigan gyms?

Write an essay about how if one of them had died, it would have affected people other than them, such as:

- the Wolfe Co. Search and Rescue members who had to put his body in a bag;
- the police office who had to explain his death to mom and dad;
- the Muir Valley climbers see their $10 parking fees go to paying more liability insurance instead of maintaining the property.

That's just a start. These guys were stupidly selfish.

I agree with community service. Next Muir Valley Trail day. They should also apologize for making Michigan climbers look bad. We get enough shit as it is.

That was a cool whipper. Looks like they are having fun. Shame, shame...

Lena do you think 20 minutes is enough time to cover all of Muir Valleys rules???

Well, if he goes overtime and people start throwing rotten tomatoes at him... would it be such a bad thing? ;)

Prefaced by I get and encourage abiding by land owner rules, even if its the glorious and immaculate valley. it does make the whole game easier for sure. Have always preached that...but get off your high horses and throwing your self entitled stones in your own glass house. How many yall actually broke the "rules" that actually have more impact than the occasional ride. like dogs in areas where they dont belong, shortcutting trails, hanging hammock ups all over the place, too big of a group in areas, establishing routes where not permitted, not wearing a rain coat when giving it to anticlimbers mom, speeding down a tiny road, parking where you're not allowed or even as small as the land owner request of waiver or reservations or or or or. victory whips and rides are not new, even fun where youre "allowed", common courtesy was not followed and the dude should be told and not do it again and let it be done, its not like he felt up a first grader. its all perspective. you dont walk on water, so dont judge those that sin different than you do.....

How many high load cycles does it take to fatigue fail a bolt or hanger? 100 Whipper Snappers, 1000, 10,000? I guess it depends if it gets plastic or remains elastic.

Not a scientist, shit barely a functioning adult. But a long fall high on the route, with rope out and soft catch is probably less of a load than a shortfall thats not frowned on at all. Your question is a relevant one that needs studied but not really applicable for this argument.
