i hate it when people belay off of that stupid loop that conects the tie-in points, wtf is that loop for anyway?!?!? i have a nice blue petzl harness and they put this friggin green loop w/ some kind of pictures on it. shit man, it ruins my day everytime i see people use that thing. cut it off and hip belay like a man! or belay from the leg loop i hear its safer


dorks at the gym that think they are participating in some new extreme sport that no one know about and only happens on plastic bloobs in a warehouse

and people that are full of climbing rules and safety information all of which is wrong! ie "you shouldnt use a grigri to belay a toprope as to not stress the anchors" really!! fuck!

I think you need psychiatric help.

TRing through the chains is annoying. For some people that's their norm! Ugh.

I hate when partners/friends don't seem to care that they have your gear at their house. I expect people to automatically bring it back. But I usually have to call, beg, annoy, and eventually go to their house to get my shit back. Damn lazy bums.

Partners that are overly slow.

Lack of organization. Big cams to small cams(ellipsis)How hard is that?

Scary belay habits. Fuck that.

When people stop me and say "dude, you don't have a backup knot [in my figure-8]" as if my perfect 4 inch tail and well dressed knot is inadequate.

You know, I've been suspecting it for a while now but unfortunately had no proof. And along comes what I assumed to be a pointless stupid thread, and here comes the rock-hard proof I've been searching for:

When people clean a route for me and put gear back on my sling out of order. Sometimes I'll ask them to put it back in order, other times I go do it myself when I get a second.

I would be irritated with a partner who was annoyed if his/her rack wasn't re-racked to their liking. Especially if we're swinging leads and that person cleans my pitch and hands the sling back racked "their" way.....(note: five periods; they're not ellipses)

I have a variation on the spelling corrector thing. The correcting of another's misspelled doesn't bother me so much, but if the two are in the middle of an internet flamefest, and one uses spelling correction as an attempt to parry, they lose style points in my book. They type who is an aggressively defensive spelling corrector shows - clearly - that that's all they've got. And that ain't much.


Back to climbing - yardsaled gear on the trail, at the crag or campground annoys me.

It's only on single pitch climbs. It's when people get back down and rack my stuff for me after a climb.

I don't mind that per say, but when my belay responds back.

One guy I climbed with basically responded back with "Fuck off" while belaying me on a route at my limit.

One dumb ass kept talking to me while I was belaying this guy on a precarious trad climb not far off the deck, and when I didn't respond, he asked if I spoke English. BTW I'm Asian. After my partner was higher and I felt he would be safe, I told him I spoke the universal language of the middle finger and showed him mine.

Hate inconsiderate racists.

One more. I hate it when group of 12 with one rope set up TR and gang bang the hell out of a route. Or leave the rope and claim it as their own. They force me to put the bitch face on. And no one wants to see my bitch face.
