the thread clearly says 'what people don't know about CLIMBING', not bouldering.

Start your own thread like "What boulderers don't know...." if you are curious about mattresses.

What people did not know is that on sunday I am going to make the fiirst ascent of the Pagoda of Death in the poorest of style possible. I am prepared for my nutsack to become an iny not an outy. And all this trepidation is at its best pointless as the end of time is nigh.

What a way to go! Think of the glory of doing the Pagoda of Death on the day the Mayan calendar reckons the end of the world is happening. Imagine the accolades that will be forthcoming on Chockstone from the cognoscenti...
Oh, wait a bit, isn't the world ending on Saturday, but you are going on Sunday right?

Heh, heh, heh.

My diary calendar runs out in 10 days, so I guess that mean that it's either the end of the world, or I go and buy another diary calendar.

Yeah but the Mayans didn't invent the wheel, so the concept of 'rolling over' the calendar probably never occurred to them either.

Would that be a small thread, or a big thread stuie?
I imagine it's hard to know what to write if you don't know about something, but that has never stopped people sharing ignorance here before.

Yep....normal humans think they can start rock climbing ....not realising that really they need to be a Zen monk/ autistic/ asbergers/ OCD monkey to actually succeed at it....

"I am into climbing too, can you do the red one?". rock climbing is done on rocks not plastic.

"why do they have that little bag with flower in it to put on their hands?"

and my all time favourite comes from some guy who brought a group of students studying risk assessment to the cliff hanger climbing gym.

"As you can see the only thing stopping them from falling is a piece of cord 3/8 of an inch thick relying entirely on the strength of the person bellow to hold them, & and the ropes would only hold about 200kg. The person on the ground could easily get rope burn"

I wouldn't want to rely only on a person's bellow to hold me...

A climber's grasp of the english language is generally worse than that of a given population...

Peging out about 20 guy ropes on your alpine mountaineering tent is necessary to stop it from blowing over in the pines campground. Anoying flappy noisy tarps will help you climb harder. Cars which beep every time you lock the central locking will be well recieved after the hours of daylight in the pines. The purpose of a slack line is to trip over drunk climbers and prevent other tents from being set up next to you.
