So can anyone tell me the best shoe to buy?



I would say it depends what kind of climbing you prefer. I like the 5.10 Anasazi Velcros or the La Sportiva Mythos.

I know the supposed purpose of this thread is to shed light on the supposed decline of the threads on MP.com, but in a funny way, it's retarded threads like this that make MP.com that much better.

What can I say; sometimes the trolls and the responses to them are the best entertainment I can find on the interwebs.

Thanks, LaDouche!

I wish the people with poor ethics and LNT practices were as vocal and passionate as Killis. At least then we'd easily know who the true retards are.

Keep up the fight Killis! And keep writing about it. I, for one, love reading them.

P.S. +1 on Under the Banner of Heaven being a good and worthwhile read if you're at all curious about Mormonism.

Holy piledrivers! Killis just drove it to the hilt in true porn fashion.

I'm having cold pizza for lunch today.

Ronnie James Dio died! Who will be the mediator for the battle between Heaven and Hell now? (Assuming Dio has now taken the battle to the main front). And who will counsel the Holy Diver?
All these questions, all this confusion. . . .

Ok, even though La Douche is possibly a troll, isn't anyone tired of the 'I've been climbing a year and want to do the Nose this summer; what do I need to do to get ready?'

Aren't those the real trolls?

Now can anyone tell me the difference between the c-4s and TCUs?


C-4 is a high explosive, TCUs are three lobed, spring-loaded camming devices. Not sure why you'd need someone to explain the difference...

If you liked Under the Banner of Heaven, you'd also like: The Mormon Murders and No Man Knows My History Krakauer took the easy route, he picked on the Fundamentalist LDS, which is just as easy as poking holes in Catholicism, or any other organized religion for that matter. the new church has gone to great lengths to distance themselves from the polygamist roots of the FLDS. You still don't get your own planet if you're a woman though...what's up with that?


I'm on that reading list, thanks!

And hey, it wasnt until 1978 that they let a black skinned(cursed by GOD according to Mo scripture)into the temple and hold any kind of cult priesthood. Not a black woman but a black man to be specific. Wasnt that a special day huh? At least the Mo women can just relax and have babies with a little "mothers little helper" on the side huh? I can see that being an OK life really.

Hey Killis, I was just sort of kidding about needing to read more of your misty saga but thanks anyways for the explanation. My personal favorite thing about sportos is most of them dont give a rats ass about an onsight, all they are into is achieving a number grade mostly. They love to spout off about the grade they sent even though the draws were already on the route! They have even go so far as to call it a REDPOINT instead of a PINKPOINT, can you believe that? Next thing you know they will start saying they did a 14a even though they used a stick clip(pure aid) for all the clips...

I'm going to clip some bolts tomorrow myself!

So, can anyone tell me the best way to learn how to slab climb? I'm not too good at it and I cant find any info on the internet, anyone know how? The gym has no slabs...

Me scaring years off my mom's life
LaDouche - do me a favor and decide if you're going to mock n00bs, sport climbers, people who live in Utah, or Mormons. I'm experiencing a sensory overload of outrage. If I'm going to go take my shirt off at the gym and try to climb out my anger, I need to know what I'm angry about.

xoxo,
Austin

P.S. - You should come over for dinner sometime. Do you like Thai food?

P.P.S - I'm from Texas and I voted for both George W. Bush and Obama in case you need more ammo to mock me.

The Douchemeister hates all. It comes with experience.
You and the Rippedster have a lot in common since both of us like to take our shirts off at the gym and get aggro. Mr. Ripped also likes to pick fights with homeless people, but that's another story.

As a new climber, The Ripparoni agrees. I still don't know what a noob is, but I get the sense that I would hate them also. Let this be a warning to all noobs: stay away from the internet because you will ruin it.

The Rip-A-Lam-A-Bing-Bang (I'm running out of AKA's) does not know what Epi or STFU mean since I am new to the internet and climbing, but I'm sure it means you are offering me a shot. Cheers!
Only someone who is huge would offer the Ripchord a shot. Very extreme of you.
But back to the hatred of NooBs; I assume they are horrible people and worthy or the Ripmaster General's scorn because they are not extreme enough and ruining the internet for the rest of us. Arnold SchwartzenRIPper is right, no?

Growing a winter coat in Red Rock Canyon- December...


I think this is a pic of some of the washed up old ruins from the Panamint City flood that wiped out the city in 1901. Check out the (OMG, I hope that wasn't a burro) dead horse! I just had a visual of some poor soul trying to out-run a flash flood down the damn, narrow canyon on that thing. They don't call it Surprise Canyon for nothing, buddy. Yikes!


Time for my cupcake.

First off, point out where I mock n00bs, I just made a suggestion that they all stay in the special n00b forum. Secondly, I am part sport climber, a former Utah resident AND I have cultists in my family. Did I tell you my great great grandpappy was Brigham Youngs third cousin once removed? Dont be angry Austin, you asked for it. And as far as Thai food goes I have to say that when in Provo the last thing I'm thinking about is food, usually I just want to get the hell out of there. Enough of the missionary/girls getting married billboards OK?

And ms dirty gri gri, could you please stop trolling this thread, I dont want to have to report you.

Can anyone tell me the best way to tape my hands? Whats the best tape?

I have heard many things about Mountain Project, but only now have I seen it for myself. I have looked at many pages and see that it is a very useful site for learning about climbing routes. It is also very good for finding partners I think, but I have never used it for that.

I see that there are 'trolls' here and I think that they are just a nuisance for everyone here who is very serious about rock climbing. I think they should just not waist our time anymore and they should find better things to do with their time!

Course not. Haven't you ever heard of Jim Erickson?

I agree. Rip-o-matic is far more entertaining than the little wanker troll that started this thread, and continues to unimaginatively follow troll-101 basics without any inspiration. What a fekkin' amatuer.
