Teaching new climbers - why you stopped? 15-Jul-2015 At 9:54:11 AM Reluctant
Was reading a thread about club issues with teaching new climbers. Got me thinking. As I've got older and climbing level declined I enjoyed teaching others to climb trad. Then teach my own daughter with knowledge gained from instructing others.

Now I only teach my daughter. Why? Assholes. Several of the people I have given my time to have acted like assholes. Best example was a long day of belaying them on their first lead. And I mean long. Putting gear in pack and asked them to gather and bag rope. Fell silent. Looked up and they were gone. Asshole.

So my question to those who have bothered to teach others - what was it that made you stop?
