Dumb things climbers have said

Post by gripster » Thu Nov 11, 2010 2:22 pm

Hello everyone,

I saw a similar thread over on Mountain Project, and it has made for some good humor. I know that the ongoing weekend idiot report already kind of covers this topic, but since things have been relatively quiet on hear lately, so I thought I would start this up for fun. So let's hear it, I know you guys must have some great ones!

Last trip down to the gorge, we met up with some really awesome women from Colorado. One decided to go climbing with us and she was leading a trad line.

She places some pro, clips in, and then yells down to her belayer "Take me hard!"

He says under his breath, "Don't mind if I do!"

Those close enough to hear this got a chuckle out of it.

I think a list would be easier to compile of smart things climbers say. Considering my group of climbing partners here is the list I have come up with...

1.

I emailed a friend last week:

"A little wary of the my hip hurting, but I ran into some dude at the gym that wants to go, and he also has a mondo. So I figure 10 inches of mondo goodness is a pretty nice incentive to go."

Funniest thing I ever overheard: Someone,I won't say who, borrowed a set of nuts for a trad route. Mid route with one in her mouth "your nuts taste funny!"

LOL! ....I gotta start doing that!
And on the third day, God created the Red River Gorge(by conjecture), and he saw that it was good.
