um who added the last poll option??? we gotta keep these mods under control ppl :) hehe

Re: the view that the best placements are easiest to get out - I'd have to say it depends what type of rock you're climbing on & how much you are wetting your pants on the crux. I don't think the leader should be thinking about the seconder when they place gear (unless as stated you are looking for a shag). But remembering how a particularly intricate piece was placed can help the seconder when they get stuck. And some of the best placements I've seen are firmly jammed. This eases mindset most of all but also keeps the placement where you seated it in case of ropedrag or clumsy feet...

Re: newbies, you gotta be easier on them cos they have no experience yet but let them know that getting the gear out is their job as seconder.

Personally I'll take a bomber thread or sling any day - happy climbing for both parties :)
