And if we hadn't backed off, I probably would have done some huge runout way off route and run into territory above my ability. We later found out the climb is notorious for getting people into trouble.

Sport:

1.) I was climbing at Jackson Falls, the routes were so covered in wet nasty moss I couldn't see the holds let alone the bolts

2.) I was climbing at Jackson Fall and broke my leg because I decked blowing the clip at the 3rd bolt..or was that the anchors....?

7.My mythos usually rock

I like this excuse. Much better than admitting to being weak or lacking in climbing ability.

What about this excuse? - Not necessarily applicable to me, despite my name. "My boobs are too big," or for the guys, "My balls are too big?

That should read: "My nuts are too big." Works for both traddies, and sportos.
Screw you guys. I'm going bowling.

I don't need excuses, everyone already knows I can't climb worth a piss.

The REAL reason that I haven't sent the bottom of Up Yonder:
Uh, the main pockets below the second bolt were kinda wet and slimy, so I had to skip them and do a harder sequence, so I didn't have the 'oomph' left to get to the stem between the thrid and fourth bolts. When they dry out, I'm sending! Well, I mean, with the stem. I'll get it without the stem after.
