Use of the verb "to send" to mean something other than mailing a letter.

The sale of Rock & Ice at Whole Foods' checkout stands pretty much sums it all up nicely.


I still think Joe has the winner, because this confirms that climbing has become a mainstream activity for the well to do, fashionably countercultural elite. Lycra is a close second. The climber's misuse of the verb "to send" and the noun "beta" are up there, too.

Use of the word "project" as a verb to mean working on a project. Gah!

Oh, "splitter" as an adjective for anything good as in "a splitter day." It's ONLY acceptable--just barely--for describing good cracks.

As a bonus Gah! I'm seeing "blue bird day" all over the place these days.

Kill the cliches! Kill the cliches! Kill 'em dead.

Excessive spotting.

Spotting for each and every move, no matter how safe or easy.

The development of the attitude that "climbing used to be better back before [insert offensive climbing development here]" and a lack of realization that those offensive modern developments led to the growth of the sport.
