ahhh... the ol' dating game. Can't date climbers...Can't date non-climbers. Kind of a lose-lose situation for us.

I think I like dating skiers the best. They have good curves!

Pickup line:

Hey baby. Wanna go climb some offwidth and then fukk?

If she says no, then ask her why she doesn't like offwidths.

I swore I'd never date another climber chick.
So I dated some non-climbers.

Then I swore I'd never teach another chick to climb.
So I dated climber chicks again.

I finally found a happy medium... a good belayer that is getting strong quickly but is still a little confused by the difference between sore muscles and injuries.

I married a skydiver that was starting to think her number was coming up soon. Think 26 jumps on her 26th birthday, and a long list of dead friends.

We discovered that the dark-humor between the two cultures is similar, but the climbing partying is way easier for old climbers, than for old skydivers.

Yeah, she moved into climbing culture ok, for 25 years this August.

Remember when Jimmy Carter tried to rescue the Iranian Hosatages? Yea - big military fail!

So, back before twitter, email, cell phones, and voice mail; we had hello, busy signal, and ring, ring, ring. All week Greg and I had tried to get in touch with Tom; nothing but ring..ring. Weather was looking stellar, and the moats wern't huge yet; Torment/Forbidden was in. Friday after work Greg picked me up and on a last ditch attempt we stopped by Tom's house. We walk in, there's Tom and his date on cuddled on the couch.

"dude, we're doing Torment/Forbiddden; come on, let's go" we say.
Tom jumps off the couch starts packing his gear.
"Ummm...Tom, what are doing?" says date.
"Oh honey...we've been planning the climb for months, this the only weekend we can do it" says Tom.
"what..you leaving...you going climbing?" says date desperately.
"yea, sorry honey, got to go" says Tom as he pecks her on the cheek and walks out.
Fantastic climb, awesome bivi's, perfect snow. Back in Seattle, Tom says; come on in for cold one. We walk in, and the house cleaned out. Totally! Furniture gone, Klipsch corner horn speakers which were each 3' wide and 4' tall - gone. His baja bug - gone. Just before the cops arrive Tom finds the note:
"now you know what it feels like to left without anything"
Judge gave the bitch the option of jail or joining the military. Now you know the rest of the story.

Oh yea, never date a climber.

Yes I have. My girlfriend doesn't climb, and she's a real keeper. I prefer it this way because I can give her and my climbing unadulterated attention.

Too funny, Bird Dog. The North Cascades are a fickle mistress, as well.

Anyone know any single climbing chicks? All the ones I meet are already taken and/or every guy in that area has dipped their hands into her chalk bag.

I know a lot of awesome, beautiful, single female climbers. One of the reasons they remain single is because they keep meeting guys who say super charming things like this.

I know my ex-wife said once right before we divorced
I will never marry another Engineer
(Translated that ultimately meant "climber.")

Yeah, well I'd never marry a (fill-in the blank) again, either.

First climber I dated got me started. When I got
better than him, he was always too busy with his bicycle
to climb with me.
Then lots of awkward nights at Camp 4 and Hidden
Valley. So i gave up dating climbers and earned the title
Iron Maiden Duchess of Camp 4. Go figure!!?

"They're all psycho"

Duh! But in a good way.

Climber chicks are especially psycho. In a bad way.

Saying climber chicks are all psycho is kind of the fox and the grapes, isn't it?
