Thats right Ward. Rules don't apply to those who helped write the rules. ;)

That is actually rule #1 - "I'm special"
It is probably the only rule I consistently follow.
Leaders lead and occasionally fuck up. Followers go along or complain.
"Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is not a path and leave a trail."

-Ralph Waldo Emerson

I tend to make the rules as I see fit 8)
 I once caught an over zellous tard climber  (I checked, it was not Lucky luke) stealing a KB off of Autum Feaver one of Isa's and my climbs. He was solo top ropeing. I waited untill he was near the top of the cliff and then soloed up Center Crack and  squatted next to him ( he was still roped in) to have a chat.  I asked him why he cleaned the pin. He answered that it was for ethical reasons as there is micro gear near the pin.  I asked him if he had led the route. he said that he had. I asked  did you climb through the roof..?  A. no, I traversed under it. I replied that is Turkey land 5.8+ PG13  The pins were for Autum Feaver 10+/11a 5.6X straight through the roof on  a nest of KB and micro gear that is the only thing keeping you from a bad groundfall that is in that nasty zone somewhere between steering a wheelchair with a straw and getting wheeled downstairs  into the refridgirator.  The crap gear nest is below the roof and once you turn the thing you still have 15ft of 5.6X to get a green alien.   He still felt adamant that the micro gear was sufficient even though he had only top roped it.  I informed him that  it was no biggie, I will just put a bolt there.  He then informed me that according to the book bolting was not permitted on that part of the cliff. I told him no worries  but I will put the bolt there anyways.  I neglected to inform him that I wrote the Deer Leap section of the guide. I never did get arround to placeing that bolt but someday I will. Had he left my pins alone it would have stayed a tard climb forever 8)

ps lucky: not all people do things "to say that I am good…"  they just do things because they like to do it….  also, years ago i lived in newark, nj; at the time the "murder capital of the US…" so i feel your pain…

I think that many people have an ethic and few climb just to say....  My text was more in reference to tradmanclimbz post on "its the line not the style".  when you don't care about the style, you dont care about the ethic



Wow. I read this. I understood it.

Bashie in rock like nuts in wedge. I had my nuts in my hand the other day. I put them in wedge crevice, I fell. So I grabbed bigger nuts.
