Oh Man, that's some pretty funny stuff Mr. Summers.
I pay you the highest compliment available. "You should be ashamed of yourself" Ha Ha
Love the top rope section comments.

Wesley - do you have a Go Pro?

Yup, I love GoPro. I have the Hero 2 and Hero 3 and I use them almost everytime I climb!

 Your blog is very entertaining. Unfortunately it's because you're green and are need of a good mentor. Find yourself a good partner. There's lots of old guys that will teach you instead of yelling at you because you're retrobolting. You just gotta be willing to learn. I believe it's good karma to get noobs shit together. I certainly appreciated my mentor.

 Oh and if that blog is a troll nice job!

It's been discussed on MP for a couple of days.  I rather enjoy it. :D Like has been said, keep up the good work, Wes!  Though at some point you probably need to put some sort of disclaimer at the bottom in extremely small print like "The Onion" or any of those other satire sites have...
