A list of Golden Rules for beginer climbers 9-Jan-2007 At 3:43:08 PM IdratherbeclimbingM9
Message
On a lighter (more esoteric?) note; ....

*Only fall as fast as your guardian angel can fly!

*"Dad, when I grow up I want to climb routes like you do."
~"Son/daughter, you can't do both!"

*The weakest safety component of most climbs is the climber !

*Poor pro on a bold climb is not a fault, it's a feature, and every second on the route is a chance to turn it all around !

*Re free-soloing; Any climber can take off their rope. The question is; How much fun did you have doing it?

*It's not what you climb - It's how you climb it.

*On self preservation; Life is a good thing. It's a better thing when you use your rack.
Ö or conversely ... A lack of self preservation is worth about a rack of nuts.

*The hell with the elegant way up, take the hard way !

*It isn't the conditions itís the decisions, so if you're gonna be dumb, you better be tough.

*SCARS are Tattoos with Better Stories!

*"If you can't be a good example -- then you'll just have to be a horrible warning."

*For as we get older, it is not the things we did that we often regret, but the things we didn't do ....... GET OUT THERE AND DO IT!

*Live to climb and climb to Live.

*Adventure Has No Destination
