Question for the very green gumbies

Post by SCIN » Mon May 04, 2009 9:12 pm

Just curious as to why you put your harness on in the parking lot before you hike up to Roadside?

Because it puffs out my package so when I arrive at the cliff I am in full effect.

Because it won't fit in my JanSport pack.

chaffing is all the rage SCIN, makes you look tough.


my question is this:
how come the biggest tool sacks who wear harnesses around, can't belay, and are walking special olympics have the hottest chicks with them??? really??

I cringe every time I hear someone say "gumby". Sounds like some internet freak/video game all-star started climbing but couldn't use "noob" anymore.

With that said, who here can honestly say that they don't look for any excuse to accentuate their package whenever possible?

I often do that even after nearly 18 years.
Simple reason - it holds my pants up on my fat ass.

I used to wear my harness on the approach when I had a crappy bookbag instead of a pack because it helped keep at least some of the load on my hips.

You must be wearing pants with one hell of a rise if your harness is at or below your waist band.

the worst I have seen is a guy wearing harness, helmet and shoes attached to harness.....while eating breakfast behind Miguels.

The worst part is he was with a group of people that frequent the Red and have been climbing for years! They did not tell the poor guy!

and then just about 2 months ago I saw three climbers walk into the Shell station with harnesses on, plus chalk bag and shoes attached. Their climbing day was clearly over, and like the jerk I am, I chased them around with my cell phone to snap a picture...

you "real" climbers are so snobbish. why does it bother you so much that they wear their harness to the crag? its no more gumby-ish than stick clipping the first bolt on a proj...
