What? Or, y' know, it's a drawing mannequin, but the clay idea is cool too.

I think you should use it to illustrate sequences on climbs you've done. Instead of the standard bizarre, drunken miming we tend to do when telling stories, you could just reenact it all in miniature.

I ran accross this company that makes "climber" wine a few months back. I've never tried any, but it would definately be a step up from the PBR my buddy and I usually take on a road trip.

You can order it from http://www.cliffamilywinery.com

I know it sounds lame but that's what we called it. I assumed that's what belayers are called at all gyms.
