Well spoken as always Rgold. If anyone is feeling that this effect is counterintuitive, I suppose a similar feel you could get would be to put your arms straight out in a chimney. When they are out at 30degrees, not too hard to hold your weight- but as they go out further, the pressure increases dramatically.

It make sense to me: thank you to all the calm, intelligent people who have posted and contributed to the information flow and discussion.

I just learned something I need (and you need) to know.


Some of the rest of you should seriously consider your words and effect on others.

I will say, that younger climbers seem able to pitch off with wild abandon and trust in places where old timers refuse to fall (or go if they think they will fall). Applying sport tactics to regular gear placements is increasing in usage and has been discussed on various and other forums extensively: it is a tactic for experts. Unfortunately, as soon as a young person gets out of the gym (where dogging is derigeur, common and safe), they do not see a difference where one actually exists in a huge way.

Not to say this example was one of those, but it's a side issue to accompany this knowledge and rgolds point.

What can ya do?

(Edited to get rid of that "some of you other assholes can lick my sweaty asscrack" comment as it was mean spirited, aggro, pointless and non-productive)
