I posted up some old climbing photos on Facebook recently and it got some memories stirring for the Rockrats which made me think back to some of the old craziness we used to get up to. While digging into the archives of the Rockrats history books, I found these priceless gems:
Thin Man: Sim, give Derek some beta!
Simian Boy: USE THE JUGS!!!
Thin Man: Just pull the runner.
Lelek Le Grunt: Okay, here’s the plan. When I move up, you tighten the rope.
Fearless Leader, while struggling up a really pumpy route at Dairy Farm Singapore, drops a
classic on the belayer: OI PULL ME UP, MAN, YOU ARE NOT DOING ANYTHING DOWN THERE!!!
5C Master, on the crux of Parang Buta, Comic: TIGHT! TIGHT! TIGHT! TIGHT! Phew, thanks!
Simian Boy: It helps when you tell chicks that you do rock climbing, until they realize that it’s the only thing you ever do…
Climber: Hey, did you hear about the guy who dropped his rope while threading the anchor and then had to have someone climb up to rescue him?
Fearless Leader: Oi! That was me!
