I would support the idea of a solo forum but only if it only allowed one person in at a time. You know, for purity.

do you really think a designated coral is going to lure more of the type of posters your wishing to converse with, into online dialogue?

Those things are endangered and human contact with them isn't advised. I'd go with a corral, personally.

sounds more like a path to complicity with spelling fascist reach around antics

still perhaps our overly market rookie has a point

what was the question you were having trouble getting answers for grasshopper?

It's your inability to comprehend that nobody came down on soloing that is the problem.

There is nothing defensible about free solo climbing. I can't think of a single argument supporting soloing that doesn't rely on a blindfold made out of ego.

its fun and makes a greater challenge to overcome... it is also fast and efficient and doesnt require other climbers in your area... you also dont have to trust your life to anyone but yourself (i dont care about that last one, I usually climb with a partner)

your mistake
experience climbers have no problem with solo climbers
we have exposure to them and thus, we know they are mostly a tight lipped crowd

dialogue between them isnt going to increase their numbers, or the survival odds of those who pine after recognition as your surviving soloist is perdominantly loath to

perhaps er could pass on one of your better worded questions?

It's funny because it's true.

If you're soloing a route, you have no safety other than your skills and strength. Betting your abilities are sound with your life = pretty freaking egotistic. Arguing that it's not = even more egotistic.

Tell me I'm wrong. I dare you.

dont get me wrong.. i love climbing with partners... i usually do. soloing is just a fun thing I do when im feeling bold, want a challenge or have no one to climb with.... i also am refering to climbing un-roped even if you are with other people.. not neccesarily being alone

No, we can't, it's against item 3-b, paragraph 12 of the RC.com charter.

Unless you can buy out the union, you can't have a discussion without being called a n00b.

15 years old?

OK kid, I was just screwing around. I've probably soloed more pitches in the last month than you've ever climbed. That was the whole punchline. The whole thing was a joke.

But you're 15, you are not old enough to have the maturity and experience to be up on routes ropeless. Unfortunately, part of being 15 is that advice from someone who knows exactly what you're going through and why you should stop is going to be ignored.

I can't argue the feeling of being hundreds of feet up pulling a roof ropeless isn't magical. I'm just saying that at 15, your mind isn't ready for the clarity of that moment. You're 15, it's like talking to a brick wall.
