Nice partner..I would have smacked you upside the head...NEVER compromise the belay .If stress in trad climbing is coming from the belay, it's time to beef up the belay.

read climbing anchor, and more climbing anchors. There is anchor with two nuts and a back up, which is enough for a safe anchor, but still scary the first time. My partners always had redundancy in there anchor. They were stress, but not over stress. Just enough to understand what is good and what is dangerous.

You told people bad advice in trad as I never compromise the belay, maybe it is time to concentrate on good habit in sport

why don't you just avoid what I am writing?

I have plenty of people who want to talk about trad.

ps  Lucky, I know i'm being picky. but, if you going to lecture, please have enough respect  for the rest of us to know what your talking about.  you've prattered on about Maslow in the past, so i know you've heard all of this sometime.
 


Do you mean prattled on?  :police:

Doh!

Don't you just hate it when that happens….

I was rushing back to work and was trying to decide between "prattled" and "nattered" and got neither.

The name "Cool Whip" was coined by Grammy (Old School). +2 to Grammy.

I guess I think it is up to LL if he wants to stress out his belayer and possibly kill himself in the process. John I do not understand why you would want to hit someone in the head as it may knock some common sense into them ;).

LL have you ever set a hanging belay from a #3 stopper ?? Sounds like a poor decision to me

i did multi hanging belay on three stoppers, some to know if my partner will be able to sustain the stress of trad climbing.

One word for lightweight hiking shit: cuben fiber.

Ok I guess that's two words - cause it's twice as expensive. But worth it.

Far be it from me to disturb the conversation ::)  Stress can be from NOT knowing about the situation and THINKING you are in danger...LL have you ever set a hanging belay from a #3 stopper ?? Sounds like a poor decision to me
