What is up with the perma-funk in the mens locker room at ET Rockville? That's the worst.

People who give a damn about what I am doing, that does not affect them, and then post about it on the internet. I hate them.

STFU, weakmo! You might be a bit more of a 'sendmaster' if you knew how to train on treadwalls or campus boards.

Short boulder problem setters who get upset when their boulder problems aren't climbed "the way they're supposed to be" because of my height and reach. Even worse, the same short boulder dudes and their ridiculous sit-starts. Oh, and last week I found a gri-gri that was threaded the wrong way. Yikes.

Getting injured at the climbing gym is the worst. It's just a bad story, and completely bereft of glory.

Five stars for cleverness (not because I don't want to hear my climbing partner).

I agree! I was injured at my gym 3 weeks ago (bad sprain while bouldering). The injury was/is pretty bad, but the story that accompanies it would be so much better if it didn't start with, "Well, I was climbing at the gym..." it's all good though. :)

These days at my gym the biggest problem for me has been lack of difficult routes. It seems the hardest topropes they've been setting recently are probably in the 5.11b/c range. There's some tough boulder problems, though I don't really care for bouldering as much.

You got it made! The local gym here is at a ymca. The hardest routes are like... easy 10. I would kill for a consistent supply of 11's.

Why is this a problem? Just leave out some of the holds on a set route to make it harder or combine different routes. Or just point at random holds and go "that one, that one, those two, that one" and you have a brand new L33t 5.15e route.

Doing a very informal survey. What do you think is the most annoying/frustrating/stupid/embarrassing part of going to the gym...

Worst part about going to the gym?

Everything! Pulling plastic, the stink, the kids who think they know everything just because they've been at it for a whole 6 months, the adults who think they know everything because they read a book and have been at it 6 months... Did I mention the plastic and the STINK?

God knows the only thing worse than a sport climber who things they know everything is a "hardcore" gym climber who think's they are actually a climber.





This post has been brought to you by the association of the new wave of disgruntled and intolerant old school ethic trad climber association.

(ANDIOSETCA for short, meetings held every Wednesday night at the pub).
And they're damn good meetings, too!

Anyways, all you plastic pullers are suckaz, if I want a problem changed at the wall I go change it, if I want it kept, it gets kept. No kids, no annoying shouting, I choose the music, and the only other people there are my close friends.
All benefits of having a home wall.

One of the benefits of going to a gym is just hopping on cool routes that other people set.

If you remove holds from most of the routes over there, you'll never be able to make it past that section. We call it the longcat gym. For most of the routes, you need to be longcat himself in order to make some of the moves (without dynoing). I cant stand gym routes where the only reason a move is difficult is because you're a foot shorter than the guy who set it.

All the routes are about the same. Big reach, high step, hand foot match, big reach, high step.... etc

I've been going there for long enough that I've been able to work myself in as a route setter... so that should help a bit.

Edited to fix quoting

People I don't know yelling up beta.

Funny part about that though is finding out later that the person yelling the beta can't even do the route.
