Bent gate just had a good idea. This could possibly be used to aid clean-up?
Obviously it would be expensive, and moreso than getting the sherpas to bring it down (there is a "prize" for those who bring down empty bottles) but the sherpas can barely keep up with the ones being left by their party, let alone the thousands left there before.
Maybe a coupla loads on the ol waspy would help clear things up?

My vote is for baseball. Wushu looks dorky as hell, karate is panzyland compared to the martial arts they already have, softball is baseball but without the pitcher getting to pelt the batter once in a while, I guess wakeboarding is neat to watch, but climbing is boring as hell. Squash is in a close second, mostly due to it's massive WTF bonus.

Article: Rock Exotica Unicenders Recall
Seconded, Redonk. Great customer service.

Article: Gear: So You Want to be an Intermediate?
It's worth noting that the Squid is the most baller stick clip ever due to how easily you can remove draws above you.

Wanna try a route that is too hard for you and everyone in your group? Go for it anyways, you can just lower off and grab the draws with the Squid.
