--You describe getting ready for work/school as "reracking."

--You use the term "bomber" for anything that works well.

--you get excited every time your watch reads 5:10 or 5:11.

--The term "redpoint" doesn't sound dumb anymore.

I think that I am in trouble here.
I teach math, and every time I hear a number like 5.11 I think...I can climb that.

I also plan routes up the outside of my school. (some of them look like pretty cool stemming jobs...if it weren't for the whole getting arrested thing I would do them)

On a rainy day, you go through all of your gear and make a list of what you still need to buy. Even with a full rack, you can always say... :I could use another number 4 stopper.

You have more shoes for climbing than you do for work.

When 99.995% of your good friends are actually climbing partners. ..... and a prerequisite to being your BEST friend is that they be your climbing partner.

When you climb stairs statically, do pullups on the lockers to check if you left anything there, and lock off to grab whatever is up there.

hmm, I've got most of these symptoms, but I still can't get enough climbing. I've also done these:

...whenever you want to explain something you use a climbing example.

...when all your poetry, writing, and photographic assignments at school are specifically about climbing.

...when you walk past any kind of wall with a friend and say "Too easy, V1 at best." out of the blue.

When you purposly lock yourself out of the house so you have to climb the fence and have to climb through a 1 ft x 1 ft window 6 feet up you back wall to get back in.

When you bring your climbing shoes to court so you can climb the outside walls while your waiting (got an extra 15 days for that...oops)

when you see a crack in the sidewalk and you say to yourself , ' that looks just like "exasperator" (squamish), but the gear looks harder' and you stand there and create a bottleneck working out the moves in your head

...when you have a chunk of rock next to your computer that you stare at, imagining you're only a millimeter tall, and you try to pick as many lines up it as possible. Then your co-workers start wondering why you continuously are drying your hands at your desk.

When the following statements have real meaning and are no longer funny and perverted:

"Nice rack"
"Grab the jug. . ."
"Wedge your finger in the crack"
"Climb on"

Ah screw it. . .they're still funny. . .and you NEVER need a break from climbing. What was I thinking?

when I zone out I look at anything near me and stare at it for long periods of time, like the previous post imagining that I'm real tiny climbing lines on everything from a concrete wall to the corners of my cubical, every now and a again I have caught people staring at my staring... prolly wondering why I'm 1 foot from a wall gazing intently...

When you refer to the interchange on the freeway as the crux.



No lie, I just did this the other day and my partner laughed his ass off.

There are tendon lumps on your wrist, knuckles, ankles, knees and groin...

It all hurts...everywhere...

A broken ankle no longer seems like a good reason to back off a climb...

You quit drinking, chasing tail, doing anything else in your free time, and spending money on frivolis stuff like food...

You break a rip from manteling off a crimper, but dont notice until your doctor friend notices a wheezing sound...

Rest days are a good time to climb 1000 foot 5.10s...



truth is stranger than friction!

A4+ date? Yikes, let's see:

Very loose
Inadequate or no protection
Chossy and manky
Probably spits grit out her openings
Lots of hooking
Gotta nail her to succeed
Lots of heading probably too
Sleeping with a harness on and tied in
Going to get easier with time
You might think you're going to die
You might die
Probably need to wipe when you're done

When you're eating string cheeze and a cliff bar for dinner, and you're AT HOME!

Phil, you definately need a break. It ain't going away man, or is it...

I think you realy need a break when the mileage at the gym exceeds the mileage at the crags... Sadly that's the situation I've been in all year. I quit goin to the climbin gym for a while and took up cross training with the weights.

No joke about the chalk bag thing too. I was doin cable pull-downs the other day and the bar was so greasy I was actually reaching for the chalk. Too bad it wasn't there, I would've used it.

When you limp to the crag with a big blue plastic boot on your foot and on crutches cause you broke your heel on a 20 ft grounder, but you think,,,I can climb that as long as I don't have to do any left footed heel-hooks.
Truth really is stranger than fiction.

I bet you know that you know you need a break from climbing if. You are in the middle of giving some poor kid his phisical and as he has his head turned coughing...But all you can think about is wow that would be one great hold.

Or mabey that is when you know that you have been away from climbing for too long.
