I don't like dogs at crags and I especially don't like fkn blasting music at crags. Gri Gris are a more complicated matter.

climbing a cliff can be dangerous at times - but it's only as dangerous as you choose. climbers choose the risks they want to take - be it bouldering, sport climbing, tradding, soloing, or mountaineering ...

kids and pets taken to the crag don't get to make those choices. rocks, climbers, equipment, whatever can fall causing injuries.

one thing that shits me to tears is kids and pets at the crag.

you know who you are. think of the impact on others before you take kids or pets to the crag

Too bad he didn't fall on the belayer who doesn't know how to belay! "This is the third time this has happened to me!" - WTF?!?

this may or may not have been said - if you read on for a bit longer, this statement is being denied

They don't. They should be locked in a padded room so they and no one else gets hurt or offended.

Better yet, down the mines earning a dollar. ;-)

Pets at the crag is another thing though. Was annoying to be out at the crags in the states with dogs running everywhere including under problems / routes...

Even worse when a dog takes a dislike to you because it gets freaked out when the sun is behind you turning you into a dark shadowy monster from the deep.

I do find it disturbing how many people you see that do feed rope out of a Grigri without a hand on the brake rope???

What's the big deal with dogs at crags? As long as they're not crapping at the base I don't see the problem.

After 6 weeks of climbing in the states where every one with a dog seems to bring it to the crag and camping, I still think they are a problem. Some of them are lovely dogs, others are annoying dogs, but almost all of them are not kept on a leash or tied up (as in fact the BLM regulation require), plenty of people aren't cleaning up after them (a women totally ignored her dog as it wandering into our campsite for a crap) and they are chasing wildlife (as some climbers calmly told us their dog was just after the lizards as it foraged in the bushes). Most crag are wilderness areas of some sort. we really don't need to be bringing domestic animals into them. We are having enough of an impact by ourselves.

Dogs at the crag is awesome, especially this time of year... eventually the snakes will get em all.
