My first comp I was in Flint Anderson's group. I had no idea who he was and just started chatting him up. He is awesome. My second and latest, I arrived with my SO and son at my first station early, introduced myself and chatted with the only others present - Jimmy Pritchard, his SO, and their dog. No idea who he was. They are totally down to earth and willing to share beta with the "new guy". Both Flint and Jimmy went on to win outright. There are some dumbshits out there, but I've had a fantastic experience overall.Some of the competitive climbers are maybe a little full of themselves, but most of the climbers that I've met or talked to that are doing the work are really great guys.
whan your done at 68 , whats next ? want to take the rope with you ?I'm pretty new to rope climbing... and at 67 pretty slow in the tree. My question is what is the recommendation or general rule about leaving a climbing rope setup on anchor in a tree overnight? It might take me a few days to.rig down a huge tree I'm working.
I kind of agree with that and I kind of think it's bull shit at the same exact time I agree to the extent that a person shouldn't have a pool that does not have a fence and gate around it that can be locked but at the exact same time under that law if somebody that turns 18 tomorrow gets hurt on your property being stupid you're liable but if they did it the next day when they're 18 they would be guilty of a crime I just don't see how that could ever be fair the way it is on either side of the fence I mean there should be something in there about reasonable securement I guess you could call it like say the child jump a fence in that case you have a fence that you have a locked gate on that would constitute reasonable securement and then you wouldn't be liable if they got hurt if that makes any sense
