A: Put them on a slab route!
Went out to the Grampians yesterday for a nice day trip..?? Had a lovely morning and early arvo playing and hurting, then there was slab!
40 meters, moderate grade... but it was slab. Oh, the joy of whimpering!
Ahhh slab....

Your thoughts?

 Sandbag them onto a mixed route with hidden gear placements and no fixed anchor, then sit back and watch the show.

You can start a panic by yelling "Off-width!" at a crowded sport crag.

There is a desciption for a route in the Rumney guidebook for a 12a or 12b. It says "not bad for the grade, unless you can't handjam".

I've seen more than a few climbers pick another climb after reading the description.

Walk past them with your exceptionally large rack, full of odd looking gear, and runners of different lengths. The fear will be so heavy in the air you could cut it with a knife and eat it because your alpine start did not allow for breakfast other than a stick of butter and some funk water.(check it Tommy, BUTTER)

Jay, bubby, that's a nice thought but what makes you think they'll even know what an offwidth is?

Crack? Aww, the rock is broken, gotta find another one...

Here's something my partner and I were talking about.

My partner and I start yelling about the dumbest thing, anything. Then I get all up in his face, he says i better get back. Then he pulls out his airisoft glock, that looks too real, but only shoots bbs. Then we yell some more and see what the outher climbers would do.

tell them that recent studies have shown that the use of depilatories (such as Nair) used on the scrotum may lead to impotence.

I don't think you can scare a Sports Climber, but how do you scare a Trad Climber?
