Stupidest thing youve seen? 25-Jul-2005 At 4:10:17 PM gemmaw
A little while ago at Thompsons Point, Nowra (in fact it was the weekend that the Nowra Mansion mob was there, although I'm quite sure the people described below had nothing to do with that mob). Anyway, we were climbing at the Grease Cave and these 2 "way cool dudes" came and made lots of hoo-ha about this hard climb they were going to try, and proceeded to jump on a 28.

Their friends walked by and said "are you on that 28?".
"No, man this is a fu**in' 29", replied the dude belaying.
"The guidebook says it's a 28 you fu**in' d**khead", says the friend.
"Well thecrag says it's a fu**kin' 29, and a website is gonna be way more accurate than a fu**in' guidebook", retorted the belaying dude.

Any thoughts I had about their level of intelligence was confirmed at this point.

Meanwhile, the climbing dude was not so much climbing, as dogging. Luckily for him, the bolts were close enough that it was easy enough to clip the next bolt from the last. He may have touched the rock, but I blinked so might have missed it.

During this charade, there was much swearing and crass language, hanging shit on each other, chest puffing, etc in an attempt to impress anyone in the near vicinity as well as each other.

In fact we were so impressed, we had to quickly pack up and remove ourselves from their mighty presence, and have a little chuck around the corner.
