I agree with jajen, Go and buy a rope. Their is no sacrifice for safety.
You know I have this shirt that says " Famous last words, Hey watch this"

" I probably wont be taking any major falls " sounds like one of those famous last word quotes to me.

What do we get by hitting 5K? Is there a gift pack with, say...a recycled bag of used chalk having a toothpaste consistency and smelling of dirty feet?

Is it automatic? I'm really weak right now, and would like to climb 5.15; especially if I can progress to that level doing nothing more than posting on the interwebs. Angelic

You really need to question this? I thought it was the whole reason for RC.
