why is it so important to you?

i personally think its quite "important" to understand that all this dribble on what people argue about isnt whats going to kill you ...

imagine if a newer climber came on some intraweb forum, and looked at the threads that have the most views/posts, what would they see?

people going on and on about how to climb this way or that way, or use this gear or that gear ... or youll be "stupid", "dead", "gumbied", etc ...

the reality is that the things people argue over and over again on the intrawebs have little relevance to climbing in the real world ... yet, read it, youd think that if you didnt do it this way or that way youre "unsafe"

there ARE things that people should worry about ... such as belaying, rapping, going out and climbing stronger thus increasing your margin, rockfall, ground falls, weather and other objective hazards, etc ... ... but these generally receive MUCH LESS attention, if any

use your brain, learn the basic skills from a real live person, practice em over and over again ... climb as much as you can ... thats what will make you "better" and "safer"

not listening to intraweb geezers arguing about this gear or not using that (perfectly fine) technique

go out and climb ... Wink
