Months ago I read a story (RC.com? supertopo? MP.com?) and I'm trying to find it again. I can only remember a few things from the story. First, that one of the climber overestimates his abilities, which leads to quite an epic for the narrator (the two were strangers). Also, I the main thing I remember is that at one time the other guy's harness and pants fall down. Sound familiar at all? I think it was at the Gunks.

Buy me a beer and I can narrate it in person.

P.S. to that story is that almost the same thing happened to a user on SuperTaco. He saw the story, someone there linked mine in that thread, then he realized it was the same guy and contacted me about him. We verified it was the same dude.

Both stories have been posted on Supertopo.

Both hillarious, all the more so since neither party knew about the other until posting their stories.
