Hello Mr Eduardo Slabofvic, (and what a wonderful user name you have)!
You are probably right, especially if one likes word play or does not have sufficient digits to count very high. Who knows, maybe British climbing shops will sell thesaurus’s to supplement their climbing guides in the future?
Derek my M10 love says that it is all easy till you fall, but what would he know, as he has been unable to keep his act together long enough to maintain an IP address to this lovely forum! Tsk tsk, those who fall by the wayside are condemned like boulderers in Yosemite Valley to look on as ants from a distance!
Anyway, I could easily be wrong, but I suppose you are suggesting that one arrives at the “Balltearing” grades after
>they dropped the ball
Perhaps this, when things became too “Extreme”? It certainly seems that way given the climb names Mr JimboV10 and Mr hero are suggesting.
Perhaps they need more bolts like this

to prevent themselves getting injuries?
Still, I do admire the way the British enjoy their climbing, especially when it is often wet and cold where their unusual gritstone is to be found. I wonder if those shortish cliffs seem rather grand when they finally get outside after months training to be heinously strong in their cellars, during their long winters?
Lovely to chat deary but I must go as the kettle is boiling. Keep working on that TV script thread Mr Eduardo. It really is very good.
Kered
(MrsM10).

back when I were a lad, I went on a longish climbing trip to North Americal and Europe. the last place I
climbed at in the States was Yosemite, and the next place I climbed at was Stanage Edge. I was far
more scared on Stanage than I ever was at Yosemite.

Hello again (with my cuppa this time), Mr Eduardo Slabofvic,
When you "were a lad" (you probably just gave cue to some on this forum who like that saying and often build on it), they did not teach you that Stanage Edge is in England and not in Europe?; but yes, yes, I see your point, as it being scary when your feeling like you are about to enter the "balltearing" grades due inadequate protection. In that context where would you rate your Dolomites experience, where I am led to believe that although protection possibilities exist, it is often rubbish due lots of poor rock?
MrsM10.

Maybe you should take up sport climbing ES. I hear you have to have your balls surgically removed to do that. Worked for Origen of Alexandria.

I am going to have nightmares now! Thanks Hero!!!
Why did I look despite the warning. A compulsion to see what the fuss was about, just like a train wreck, just like a train wreck.......

That's what I love about the web. The ability to go from sport climbing to castration in just one click.

Maybe Petzl should start manufacturing those DIY castration clamps in their range of sport climbing equipment.

I don’t mean to be too pedantic, but I always thought that sport climbers had very small penises, and not,
as Hero suggests, lacking testicles.

Weird - I find lots of them to be big dicks, with no balls . . .

Notice the quad axles on the clamp. Much stronger than Camalots!

Please come out of your closet and confess that you are titillated by these naughty swear words.
Moreover you love it when your Derek dresses you up in leather and calls you a dirty bitch.

Dear Hero

You clearly know him/her/it. You better tell the world or I'll torture to death this sweet innocent eggplant I
have in my hands.

Its the shallow, persistent and numerous cuts that hurt the most and Mr Egg Plant (aka Oh Bergine) is
crying for a hero. Can you fulfil your destiny and save the vegetable?
