i have a tennis ball that i found on my way to solo aid a loose, sketchy crack at my home crag. i sharpied a smiley face on one side, and a terrified face on the other. "willy the wall ball" stays clipped on my harness now via a prusik sling lobotomized through his forehead. before i head up a climb, i look down at willy, turn him around so he's smiling at me, and ask if i'm on belay. big wall willy gives me strength and courage, and if need be, a way to bail off a route.

Wait, you would bail off a tennis ball-chockstone shoved in a crack? That is seriously hardcore. :)

If you were "honest and straight forward" wouldn't your name be Eleanor?

You stay away from mah pig!
Not so much a superstition as an entrenched ritual, but I always make sure that, when I am getting ready for a climb, my shoes are the very LAST thing that I put on. camhead

I can assure you that when concerning your on-line persona, the only big deal is how the chuff-lets and nobbers respond. I think it's fun.

As for you being a straight forward person, you first have to be in touch with reality, which you are not, making you the comic sideshow that is MP. I would say that you are about as straightforward as Charles Barkley; you are entertaining but no one else can understand what you are talking about so the only person who you matter to is you. But seriously, I love your nonsense and the way it makes peoples heads explode, carry on.

No, it would be stinky-hippy or smellanore. I believe these predated her all so famous Ellenor handle.

Hey skank, you're the one that asked! I also like to smack my belayer in the ass right before I cast off. Hopefully before they shat themselves.

on the way to the area we climb in me and whoever is in my party for the day always give a wave to some religious statute in the front yard of a church that is waving towards all passersby.

less superstitious but more of a ritual is the driver for the day telling the other where the keys are stashed in the pack "just in case"
