I was at Summerday Valley on the weekend just gone - had a great weekend climbing....

...with the exception of a guided group of kids, out of approximately 30 people that crossed our paths
at the crag, my climbing partner and I were about THE ONLY PEOPLE WEARING HELMETS.

Bloody disgusting.

Don't be irresponsible, don't be ignorant, don't be presumptuous, don't be selfish.

Be responsible and smart, be cautious, and be fair to others.

Wear a helmet.

...and to the tool (I believe he was guiding some friends) who suggested to me that I chip away a bit of
rock to get a cam out....you should rethink your respect for our environment too. And to think people
are looking up to you.

I'm with you on the chipping the rock to get the cam out, that said I tried to get my first friend, a no.3 out with a madock, but you lost me on the helmet thing. Wearing a helmet would take the "summer day" vibe out of the experience for me.

You are right. It would be selfish and irresponsible to chip the rock. I did have a problem
however with your grammar. I corrected it below.

Have a great day,
Sol

How about "Don't be a helmet Nazi and let people climb the way they want to"

Would the retort be "don't be shellfish?"

If you asking people to wear a hard outer shell then maybe that should be "Do be shellfish!"

Instead of Sally sold sea shells by the sea shore how about Climber Quick wore Kevlar caps at the cliffy crag.

Or maybe I should just go home now.

My climbing partner on Sunday pulled off a loose block and it split his lip. He was wearing a helmet. He is spitting chips (of tooth) that he didn't wear his Ned Kelly this weekend.

This is why I wear my homemade Ned Kelly at all times. It keeps me safe, is equivalent to
SPF 1000 and as a bonus the girls seem to dig it. Though it is hard to tell through the slit.

Some sort of polycarbonate mask might be the way forward. Clear, UV resistant, light weight and tough. I might make an articulated full-body suit. That could change the equation greatly.

I have been thinking about an upgrade to light weight Kevlar model. I have, however, lost my
key....
