Next time I hear a grunter at the crags I assure you... jokes WILL BE MADE.

Jesus f-in' Christ, I sure HOPE SO. We did a bit of that yesterday and it added just the right amount of spice to the stew. I was the brunt of jokes and my friend's finickiness about a route I wanted to do in turn became my running joke about him. Good natured, mind you. But my partner and I roll like that.

ok maybe YOU don't, but some guys grunt/scream on, like, every problem because they think they "should" or something.

it is often quite hilarious.

'Round here, we call such men "wedges", for they are the simplest kind of tool.

I've learned that women (the ones I know, not yall) don't cotten to "Guy Encouragement" either - you know, where guys yell up GO FOR IT! and TRY HARDER! that sort of shit.

My daughters DO NOT like that. I try to splain to them... its hard for us guys NOT to do that. We are taught to do it from our earliest ages. We learn it in school. We learn it from our boyhood friends. We learn it through team sports.

I don't like that kind of encouragement either! I don't know that it's a girl thing though because some of my female partners do like it. When I'm getting scared, I'd much rather my belayer encourage me by saying something like, "It's okay, I've got you." I like to know that my belayer is watching me and paying attention and that if I do fall, they'll catch me. I HATE it when I'm feeling really insecure and my belayer (or anyone) says, "You look great! You can do it!" It makes me feel like they're not really watching or they don't know what's going on with me up there at all. When I don't feel solid, I want to know they've got me if I *don't* "have it." Maybe that is a gender thing, but I think there's too much individual variability to make generalizations based on gender.

However, I do think it's safe to say no woman like stupid sexual comments to be made while she's climbing.
damn, dingus, I wish I had learned this years ago. I'm still working on not using "guy encouragement" toward my wifey.
