Back in the day this sort of behavior would have not been tolerated. Forget about the ro-sham-bo for poop bag duty, they would be assigned that forever!

I guess I was lucky with climbing partners.

This behavior has nothing to do with climbing, per se. Its just normal social bullshit.

Weight lifters and body builders go thought this drama too.... folks who are consumed with 'body image' (sound familiar?) and therefore tote the egos necessary to drive that body image. They usually need work out partners, for some of the same reasons climbers do. They will tend to have their 'go to' partners, their 'casual partners' and the 'no fucking ways!'

OH THE DRAMA!

It all comes down to pack position, body image and sex.... same as most other human interactions.

Its NORMAL. Folks just get better at disguising it as they get older. I'd bet everyone on this board has indulged in some form of this behavior, post puberty.

There is, of course, the possibility that you are truly a slut, and your climbing partners are trying to give you a hint.

(This is the explanation that turns me on the most.)

Is it possible to "cheat" on climbing buddies? Are you expected to ask permission from one partner to climb with another person?

gotta admit, the fact that it changes with each refresh is kind of clever.

I blatantly stole the idea, but it's awesome and was thus worth ganking.

definitly worth ganking. I especially like the one of the half naked babe.]

<-- Starts obsessively refreshing page.

Edited to fix cheesetittage


BWHAHAHAHA

I got one! Or am I joking? Is there really a half naked babe? maybe just one more refresh....Tongue

I want to disagree with the assumption that everyone here is post puberty.

Also, see fix above

Thanks, Dingus, for writing what I didn't have the patience to write. You do that a lot.

I'm interested in a question for the OP: what are the genders and sexual preferences of Person 1, Person 2, and you? I'm betting there is a crush triangle going on here. It doesn't matter if you were climbing or digging holes, same stuff would have happened.

me=female,straight, person 1=female, I think straight. rest of the group=guys, as far as I know straight. It could be about gender, but I've seen person 1 pull this kind of thing with others when everyone involved is female, so who knows. It's a little unexpected to see someone who approaches the rest of her life drama free, but brings it to climbing. One reason I thought it might be a climbing thing. Ah the vagaries of interpersonal dynamics!

Its CLIMBING not SEX.

most climbing is vertical, except for the occasional traverse. Cool

Sex can be had on the vertical, too...

Knee pads are aid, though.

aids should be avoided.

Curt

Good points! Does the harness count as aid? what about the rope? What if you rig the harness from the rope? because you have a point - aid should be avoided..at least that's what my buddies keep telling me...hee hee,

You are mean and have no loyalty. Thus, I will never climb with you. Tongue
