Well shit... If Redpoint is wearing a helmet, we should all wear a helmet.


Considering most climbers I know are brilliant people, you would think they would want to protect their most valuable asset.

There was that scene in hamburger hill when that soldier ran out of bullets and beat that guy to death with his helmet. Maybe members of the club should do that to anybody who gives them shit for wearing a helmet...
You can count me in the club, too. Maybe we should come up with a cool sticker for the helmet. Maybe a picture of a cracked egg with a circle and line through it. Maybe some reference to humpty-dumpty.
If you give a man a match, he'll be warm for a minute. If you set him on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life!

It puzzles me to how Humpty Dumpty could have been a king. I mean a system of government based on an embryo, then someone puts it on a wall and guess what? I mean ... ya know?

Couple of weeks ago Jill and I were chided by a group of college (NZ's term for private boarding middle / high boarding schools) kids for not wearing a helmet while TRing a route. I'm flailing, Jill's belaying and we hear this girl say; "Hey, she needs a helmet! And...he needs a helmet!"

So my question is this, will I get kicked out of the club if, from time to time, I don't wear my helmet?
I see they are still lopping off mountains in Eastern Kentucky. Electricity isn't cheap.

I might wear one, but they look gay. And Ashtray and Buster would laugh, (and possibly beat me up).

Free falling in open space, like on routes at the 'Lode may be where the sport climbing helmet is seldom needed or used. Any chossy rock above and I'm suiting up with the hard plastic brain bucket for sure. Since I tend to drop gear, my belayer is better off too with a lid on the head.
