certainly a fake but a very good one. The devils in the details, like how he set his own 5.12! There are some pretty funny comments on his posts, got a couple people to bite.

I often set boulder problems for myself... but usually get other people to grade them first after 3 or 4 sends. what a goon.

I quickly excelled at the sport and found myself instructing people on such things as Top Roping, Bouldering, Knot Tying, and Safety. Recently, I have further grown as a rock climber and have taken my sport to new heights: Outside! Words cannot express how great it is to be outdoors on the rocks and being an example and inspiration to the climbing community.

example and inspiration to the climbing community.

This world already has me! This dude got to back the f*#k off!!!



On the side note, I can't believe how many people here did not get the humor right away! Funny blog.

◾Climbers love music. It has been my experience that you almost always hear music at the crags. But before you blast Dr. Dre on your portable speaker, make sure you ask everyone at the crag what their taste in music is. You donít want to play Hip Hop if the other group at the cliff prefers Jazz. An easy way to accommodate everyone, Iíve found, is to swap out iPods every half hour or so. This way everyone gets to hear their own music at least once.


LOLOLOL Have a blast with accommodating me. I listen to Slipknot.


EDIT: I read more of his blog, and not everything is funny. This guy sounds serious too. If it is a troll it is a good one. If he believes in everything that he writes, it is still funny.

I wish I believed this was a troll, but the existence of terrifying safety advice is irresponsible if so. That said, it is hilarious and I try to believe it's a troll as much as possible so I don't have to imagine ever meeting this dude.

The "I sent my first 5.12 and so I posted about it on the gym bulletin board" was brilliant. I was gunning for prank or downs syndrome at that point.

This guy says to use daisy chains to clip into anchors to be safe. This is exactly the kind of idiot who will die by doing it incorrectly!

Youíll hear a lot of climbers use the term, ďcoreĒ. This is used to describe the fact that a lot of climbing uses the muscles in the middle of your body. But climbing itself does not work out these muscles.

Not sure if troll or just stupid.

The blog itself is pretty funny. But this video posted by a commenter had me laughing so hard my eyes were leaking.

Looks like Johnny Y on MP did some research up show the guy is either a troll or stealing images and such due to being unethical

Some of the comments do seem to give it away, which saddens me, i want to live in a world where this person exists.

Looks like the photo from Progression is from Elevation Place in Canmore Canada

And the grigri belayer in the first post is definitely not him: wrong belaying technique

And the guy on Getting Lucky... yea, Steve, back in 2009

There is no silver bullet yet but yea this person probably doesn't exist and I am terribly saddened.

Not to be a Sherlock Holmez wanna be, but someone (with no previous pots on MP) posted a thread about this blog 8 hours ago on MP. Miltch (was on ST for less than a month) posted it to SP at about the same time. Names of these threads are very similar. I would not be surprised if Miltch and person who started the thread on MP are the same person, and a creator of this masterpiece.
Anyway, hope to see more LULZY posts by the blogger..
