people who climb with too much respsability

It's hard to know how much respsability to climb with. I know I need 1-2 liters of water per day but other things vary so much with the location, weather, etc.

Lowest black 1" tied tubular runner wrapped around a fully closed crack and omnidirectional, followed by a green Totem cam, then 2 nuts highest up. This was totally overkill and I only did it cause the it was the first multipitch gear route these guys had done and the guidebook said that you needed to be comfortable with belays being your body wedged into chimneys and I was proving a point. We got 3 bomber pieces for each of the 6 or so belays on the route.



That might not be the best example as there was 3 of us on that route and I changed the belay so I could lead the next pitch.
