No special creeds, translations, or manuals! In the original King James English language, just as Jesus spoke it!

Don't think I've been on that climb, I'll have to check it out.

Well, a friend of mine gave me a copy of "The God Delusion," so I bashed his head in with a chunk of Nuttal Sandstone, just to be safe.

You may as well if you've climbed the rest, but I was totally joking. It's not the worst route ever, but it's more bad than good.
efil lanrete... i enjoy the sound, but in truth i find this seductively backward idea to be quite frightening

Oh! Thanks for coming clean on that and not hosing me.

Hey speaking of 11's, have you notived that trad and sport grades don't seem the same? What's the deal with that?

And what's up with dogs at the crag? That's crazy right? Has anyone had an issue with that?

Is anyone getting psyched for fall?

No problems with dogs, but this clown at the crag told me that his Gri-Gri was more safe than my ATC. What's the deal with that?

that is actually true... but did you hear that the grigri2 is not as safe as a grigri because its smaller and might turn you gay?

yeah, pretty sure Jesus didn't speak english.
And on the third day, God created the Red River Gorge(by conjecture), and he saw that it was good.

I really think that "Papa love jugs" is the best 11d in my experience. There was a tall 11 that was super well bolted and headstrong. A really nice route. It was one of those routes that you think to yourself. I wish I had 1000' of climbing like that!

Don't try to complicate facts with your liberal propaganda.
