Vladdy won't be joining us again. At least not with that particular username. I'll poke about in regard to the other one.

It doesn't have anything to do with whether your partner is a girl or a guy. I've had guys belay me who literally scare the hell out of me and girls who I have been fine with.

I'm a big guy, so the only thing I'd ever worry about is my weight in comparison to the girl.

Try rooting around a bit and see what you can learn.

Try harder. It's definitely a meme. Read the FAQ, it might inspire you to look for things.

It's starting to get a lot of hits now when you use the googly eyes. Glad to see my avatard is one of the first.

Also, the most dreaded belays I have ever received have come from women.

So who would you rather have belay you? Of course its better to look down and get a sneak peak at some cleavage if you aren't already hooking up with the belayer, but on a hard climb that you don't want to deck on: Would you rather have a man or woman belay you?

whatever. i trust my girl with my life. i never have to worry about a thing when she's got me on belay.

I climb with a 16 year old girl that I outweigh by at least 60 pounds. No issues.

I've been belayed by my wife over 1000 times. I could care less how little the belayer is as long as I know they will take the hit and not pass out or let go. I have took wippers and pulled her into the wall many times. She has took some really hard hits and never even blinked.

It's about trust. Not size or sex.

The best single belay I have received was from a woman I outweigh by 30 lb. She jumped backwards off a ledge to keep me from grounding after a 30 foot whipper. Stopped me two feet off the deck.

But then again I will only climb with somebody I know belays safely.

And I'll probably get banzed for mentioning climbing in scummunity.

I want to disagree with the OP. In fact, he seems like an ass.

However, I have decked twice in my years. Both at the hands of a female belayer. Coincidence? Probably. Do I still climb with women, Absolutely.

girls are lighter so they give softer catches and put less force on your top piece.

I promise once you figure it out you'll be pissed for spending as much time/energy as you did trying to figure it out. at least that's what happened to me.

edit: well, I fucked that one up.
