I have recently become interested in what the lamest excuse anyone has heard or used for not climbing well.
"My shoes aren't sticky enough."
"The sun was in my eyes"
"High gravity day..."
I bring this up because I may have come up with a candidate for the lamest excuse ever used and want to know if anyone can top me.
Yesterday I was climbing some very steep friction (TR), and I felt that I couldn't keep the center of gravity of my legs close enough to the rock. I complained that "my feet were too long."
It made sense to me at the time, but my belayer's hysterical laughter set me straight.
Can anyone top this?
