How often do you solo?

How many weekends/year do you travel to climb?

How many weekdays/week do you climb?

(from rec.climbing) What discipline of the sport has caused you the most injuries (aid, alpine, bouldering ice, sport, trad)?

Here are a couple of topical ideas....


What's your favorite way of defacing the cliff?

a) Bolt chopping
b) Chipping
c) Gluing
d) Piton theft



What's your favorite method of cliff defacement?

a) Ground up, free on lead only (pure ethical defacement)
b) On rappel (hangdogging defacement)

Hydration while climbing:

1) Water
2) Sports drink
3) Beer
4) Just suck on the lichen

Post-climbing drink:

1) Hi tech sports drink to replace precious electrolytes
2) Beer, because the only point of climbing is to have one afterwards.
3) Whiskey, to dull the pain and enhance the retelling of epic stories
4) All of the above

Drugs while climbing:

1) Big hit of caffeine.
2) A quick bowl to gather courage.
3) Climbing is the only drug I need.
4) Jesus is the only drug I need.

Identify most with which following statement.

1) Sick hard problems are where its at, yo. You mean there's roped climbing at the Gunks?
2) I'll drive 10 hours to climb at Rumney, its so rad. Screwing around with gear is for old, bearded geezers with silly plastic hats on their heads.
3) The only Ethically Pure (TM) way to scale a precipice is to climb as our forefathers, and shun permanently fixed expansion bolts (but don't remove those pitons, eh?). And, Cathedral 5.8 is 10c at Rumney.
4) I plumb the dark depths of my soul by courting the cruel mistress of the cold alpine and pushing the envelope of extreme, unleashing my Alpine Ubermensh... uhhh...umm...  in Huntington Ravine (hey, shut up, Mt. Washington's got the Worst Weather On Earth, Nanga Parbat's got nothin' on it).
5) Never leave the gym, but dig the mags, eh?

I am a NECLIMBS junkie because

1) The bolting/ no bolting argument never gets old.
2) I am mesmerized by the bug-o-meter.
3) I am secretly in love with Tradmanclimbz.
4) Like many North Americans, I find myself behind a computer at an undemanding job dreaming of the couple of days a week I can bolt.

How about...


Ginger or Maryanne?

PTN

(I'm thinking Ginger probably already has a harness, while Maryanne would have an ice cold beer waiting for you at the top.)

Farting at the belay:
- Face your partner
- Face away

Bailing on a climb:
- Accept responsibility
- Blame your partner
- Blame nature

Post climbing refreshment:
- You offer to buy a round for your pals
- You act like you're broke so someone buys you a round
- You don't drink beer and therefore are the butt of all jokes

If you were a style of trousers, you'd be:
- Knickers
- Bell bottoms
- Hip huggers
