You're waaaay too late on that one.

As someone who has actually seen the Gabe climb, I must say that I'm in awe of his style. I may climb "harder", but I think he climbs "better". He throws in a figure-four in every route he does, even slabs! Now that's hardcore.

Are you two by any chance bum chums?

Now Gabe, the only one I have a relationship with that requires sticking objects in bums is your mom. Hell I even let her toss my salad a little bit. See it's all about ME NOW BITCH! Why do you think your mom doesn't want to buy you new gear? Because she spends all her money on ME! See, when you climb at MY level, you need tons of specialized gear specific for the HARD CORE climbing that I do. It's just like that, that's how I ROLL BITCH. So in you mom's mind, she's like "5.11c or 5.11d? Gabe Walker or BBENTLEY? Gabe WHO? 5.11c WHO? First I stole all your sponsors, then I stole your mom. That's right, she's driving ME around to all the cool crags in town and I'm totally just OWNING these hardcore climbs. You're finished Gabe Walker, FIN`E, CAPUT. I'll ALWAYS be one step ahead of you. That's what separates the TRUE CHAMPIONS from the losers who only climb 5.11c.

I honestly have no reply to you. Your rambling rant has not in anyway bothered me, except that by reading it I have wasted a good two minutes of my life trying to comprehend what the hell you are saying, and it actually has made me dumber. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

WOW!!!! It took you a whole 2 minutes to read that? You ARE retarded, arenít you? I don't think there's a possibility any way shape or form of you being any dumber than you already are. So don't blame your retarded ness on me, it's not my fault you were born with fetal alcohol syndrome and have a 2-inch penis.

Assuming you got a girlfriend maybe she can pat you on the ass for some recognition.

If not try your Mom. Moms are always good for making their kids feel better.

I climb more in the gym, since I work in one, but I climb harder outside. So I'd say it must depend on the gym, 'cause the ones 'round here are not out to make anyone feel good 'bout themselves, they're here to make you better outside.

I am being serious here. I asked a simple question, there is no reason to not give me an answer. The gym guys really said I am good, and my mom doesn't want to buy me new gear because it is expensive. So real answers only please.

What specifically gear are you looking for? Maybe a bolt gun that automatically shoots bolts in to the wall? cuz, yah know, that is the first thing sponsor give their athletes

I figure that now would be a good time to include this information. I work with behaviorally "challenged" youth. One tactic that works rather well with them is when they're seeking negative attention, is to utilize "planned ignoring". They simply don't get the results they're looking for and usually resort to other, appropriate means of seeking attention. Another thing that often works is offering positive attention before they begin to seek after negative attention. It's called "front loading". We could ignore this post and maybe Gabe will go away. If not, then I've created a thread here: http://www.rockclimbing.com/...ost=1549541;#1549541

Please feel free to add to the "shrine to Gabe Walker"

hosh.

I thought climbers were supposed to be strong both physically and emotionally but I am disappointed to see a Gym Rat is begging like a dog asking for food. If I was a doorman working in one of these companies, I would not even let you park in the parking lot. Get youíre a** back on that rock start climbing you rat.

That shows what you know, jackass. Anyone has climbed for more than two fucking days should recognize that climbing is meant to be a physical and emotional challenge; if it were a walk up and everyone was strong from the getgo, there wouldn't be a countless stories of people pushing their limits of physical and mental strength, however large or small, to achieve higher personal results.

Oh yeah, can you explain to me how a tyrolean works again? I wasn't quite clear on that, and you're obviously the reisd-ent exprerd on tings clim-eing.....oh sorry I forgot how to speak fucking english; can you give me a lesson in that, too?

So the OP has no idea what sponsored climbers ....well, climb at. Fun to flame, of course, but maybe if he pushes himself he'll get a free pair of shoes someday.

If you want to be sponsored, work on climbing...not how to market yourself.

No, your wrong. grades in gyms are always harder then outside. I learned to climb in a gym, and was solid on 5.11s, and onsighted a 12b my first time climbing outside. But the one thing gym climbing did not teach me was how to tie two ropes together. So GabeWalker is pretty strong you have to admit. But the best climber is having the most fun, so fun is what counts.

What you are saying about the ratings inside cannot be compared to outside, its totally different, inside all the holds are marked, beta is much easier. If you want harder gym ratings then outside, go climb my routes inmy my gym, sandbagged some say. But it just cant be compared to outside climbing, there are many factors involved and its like comparing apples to oranges.

Yo, If i was you I would try to find a local climbing team around you, join the team do good in climbing comps. Then once you do good start e-mailing climbing companies and just be like: Im on a team climbing....what ever lvl you climb at the time, and say you are in comps. that works for the most part. Also dont go for the big climbing comps. start small Tongue local shops....clothing....anything, just get your name out there. and never forget CLIMB FOR YOURSELF ADN NO ONE ELS. peace bro. have fun Smile
