Hands down the "daisy chain", and suddenly en-mass everybody had to have one girth hitched to their belay loop, sometimes two of them. We had a guy at Jackson used to walk around with one between his legs clipped to his rear loop, plus he was short, so you get the picture.

climbers afraid of falling. ie: sport climbers and boulding only people.

I fall a lot more sport climbing than I do on gear routes.

Your point fails.

Daisy chains rock, but they clearly have their place. If I'm not a wall though, you'll never see me use one.

The mentality that tard climbing is superior to boldering or spurts climbing just because grumpy old men can sew their way up a 5.8 crack without risking more than a 3' fall at any given time.

It would be worse if were his daisy that was short, no?

I really don't get the hate for the "PAS" type slings.

I think it's just as silly (and less safe) to have to thread a sling on the harness every time you have to anchor before a rap.

grumpy old fuks criticizing Sharma's lack of technique when his feet cut on sh#t they couldn't hold if their lives depended on it (circa 1996).

Circa 1996 was twentieth century, but also close to twenty years ago.

Why are we discussing dumb sh#t from at least thirteen years ago?

Are you people stuck in the past?

The stupidtaco asked, I answered.

I wish I was stuck in 1996!

Damn, almost 6pm... I wanted to be high by noon and I failed miserably!
