hmm, there are a lot of beginners on this site that may take your information seriously.
since it wasn't funny then I'm assuming you're making some sort of comment on the stupid things a lot of people do but it would be nice to add something saying that people shouldn't take your post seriously.

Maybe you should just suck it up and finish the climb, instead of bailing in the middle of a climb by "rapping off your cam hooks."

Somebody suggested a forum for "teenagers" awhile back. It's seeming like a better idea with this kid on this site (with multiple identiites), as well as a couple others who add nothing to RC.com.

Sorry jeff, I disagree,

A forum strictly for teens would present a liability, if these kids are posting technical information that is incorrect, and those kids that follow that advice with no other input, well, you could end up with a bunch of dead kids, very uncool, I'm glad that the teen forum never got off the ground (pun intended).

Dude, i think the point Beta was trying to make was that the people in the teen forums would generally be newer to climbing, and so more impressionable, so they would actually be endangered if they took in the kinda c**p from the guy above. By mixing the forums, older climbers (who often have a few more years and climbing experience behind them) can pass on what they know and dispell aforementioned c**p. This is the whole point of having forums

schlong- check out this site about 2/3 down the page.
http://www.pikamtn.com/hookspitons.html

Cams hooks are generally used in aid climbing and they are placed in thin cracks and then they rotate when weighted and torque into the crack. As soon as they are unweighted they usually fall out and thus are not very good for free climbing.
