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

What we all need is more charity and forgiveness. I regret a lot of posts I've made on the MP forums, but I'm fairly certain that I haven't completely alienated myself from any member of the climbing community...at least, I hope not.

BTW, I want to say for the record that the acqusations made against Joseph Smith on this thread are false. I'm not trying to start a religious debate nor am I going participate in one. I just needed to say that.

I've said my peace. I'm done with this thread.

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!

When dumb people have disposable income, hilarity ...
Man, it kind of blows to be famous for something as worthless as meeting Misty once.

It's pretty amazing to see all the different reactions to Douche's posts. Some folks really take this shit personally.

I'd just like to add that Joseph Smith is guilty of polygamy, a convicted con man, and starting one more dumb mythology that keeps people fighting over utter horseshit. It's off topic, I know we're supposed to be bemoaning the supposed sad state of affairs relating to this site's forums, but I firmly believe that the wasted lives of millions of people and billions of dollars falling into church coffers seems a trifle more important. WAKEUP CALL: if you actually give a shit about ANYTHING happening on ANY website, you need to get outside and start remembering that you're a pissing, shitting primate who's lucky not to be eaten by wolves at any given time. Your great-grandparents would be calling weaksauce if they could see you now.

But let's get to what everyone really wants: personal dirt on my "fued" with Haggard Murphy. It's pretty boring. I thought 2 fixed "belay draws" that were hung at or below waist level at the VRG seemed lame and stupid beyond words. I removed them and posted up in the hopes of drawing attention to the situation regarding permadraws in the Southwest and how far it's gone past the sensible from leaving up a single draw that's impossible to clip in the climbing sequence or a couple under a roof to every bolt on a cliff covered, including ones only intended to keep someone from flying off a belay ledge if the leader catches big air. Fer chrissake-if you can afford the gas to the cliff, maybe you could afford the financial and caloric expense of carrying a single draw to the crag. I think dumb lazy shit like that makes climbers look bad. Misty's more in the "it's my cliff, so I'll put fixed dog bowls for my pooch at intervals so I don't have to schlep around a bowl for her" crowd. Tore me a new one a few times, got booted from this site for it, soon enough it was old news. Ran into her at a cliff recently, apparently she's not into the whole forgive and forget deal, and it blows back up again.

In Vegas there's this code of "don't ask, don't tell" going on with the limestone that a lot of people adhere to. I think it's horseshit. There are epoxied and concreted holds everywhere at Potosi to compliment the seeping Bosched pockets. Everything is permadrawed, even the 5.10 warmups. The local ethic consists of leaving a rope, shoes, harness, etc up there for the season if you're climbing there.

At Cathedral, there are new climbs going up that are 80% glue, there's trash and tupperware all over the place, and people are shitting in the cave to add class to the wilderness experience.

I somehow fell in love with limestone climbing since I moved out here but it's weird having to get past the bile rising as I navigate someone's personal domestic situation to get to a climb. I can't stomach climbing at 90% of the spots that have hard routes because of how ghetto people make these cliffs.

When you think a lawnchair is part of the necessary equipment at a cliff, you and I have parted ways on climbing philosophy.

My message is this: it's not a good way to make yourself Mr.Popularity by pointing out to anyone with 2 good legs that they can score as much sport gear as they want at any time for a short hike, but fuck the trashing of beautiful cliffs in the name of convenience. Fuck my internet rep, fuck vicious twats who smile to your face and then don't even have the decency to write a halfway decent hate song about you. I encourage anyone within driving range of Vegas to come down here and go shopping at the Sport Climbing Swap Meet. I'll get blamed, you'll get bling, and, quite literally, no one's the wiser.

Did I hijack the thread? Whoops...

Thanks for the entertainment, hope that satisfied Douche's curiosity.

PS since you all have way too much time on your hands, here's something productive you can do rather than read my posts. Check out Under the Banner of Heaven by Jon Krakauer. Awesome book, pretty much shoots the whole Mormon thing in the face and then stakes its heart to make sure. Six bucks in paperback and will keep you up nights. Enjoy.

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.

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...

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.

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.
