Yup got and see the point.

I still think climbing partners should carry an EQUAL share of the community load though. Along the lines of the thin hands comment, really.

You mean weight in the back pack?

I think everyone should do what they can. I carry as much as I can, you carry as much as you can.

If I climb harder thin hand than you, I'll lead that pitch. If you're better at slabs, you lead that pitch.

I'll try to get better at carrying loads and climbing slabs (instead of leaning on biological excuses) and will appreciate your skills instead of reducing them to something that you should be able to effortlessly do b/c you're a guy who is built a certain way, even if that is a factor.

In a perfect world, that's how I like to go, anyway.

If we expect to only climb w/ people who have IDENTICAL skills too our own, the team is actually more limited. Lynn Hill made an interesting comment about this in the little video about climbing the Leaning Tower w/ Katie Brown...there was a limit to how well they would be able to complement each other biologically.

PS Sorry about the ordering thing. My post got copied when I was editing.
