Latley when I've hooked the rock it has been breaking on me, is the rock just too soft or am i doing something wrong (it happens on aboot every 10th placement) I try to find the most solid rock, is this just part of aid?

Yeah that's part of aid. Today I had quite a bit of rock breaking on me. I would start to bounce test good looking stoppers and the whole rock would break(just slam a pin in and feel the confidence). I like stuff like that. It keeps me entertained. Sorry if you don't feel the same. Just test it good if you think the rock isn't great.

If you don't like loose or brittle rock don't climb in rock scar areas. These are the worst. Lots of dirt spills out and the rock is loose most of the time. Really good fun for some, not for others.
