Crag rush crash

I’m often in a rush to get to the crag and get on my project that I’ve fallen on my back so many times for various reasons. When I do – with my pad on my back – I’m stranded like a turtle and have to ask passing strangers to help me up.

Once when stranded on my back I tried to roll over like a turtle would but I have a huge Full Pad by Organic which is like a bed and impossible to roll with. Obviously I can just let the straps out and get up but where’s the fun in that!

Rock Climbing in Australia

I grew up in Australia and learnt to climb in the blue mountains. A lot of people I talk to are irrationally afraid of the dangerous animals and insects that live in Australia and I often find it a lot of fun to play on their fears.

It’s certainly true that we as climbers got and stick our fingers into places that could get us bitten but I’ve never heard of it happening. All the little creatures are far more scared of us, than we are of them, when they hear us coming they get as far away as possible.

Ultimate Beta

There can be only one. Yes this is the best beta to shout at your friends when they are sucking on their proj or just looking a little down.

Remember that this is the time of year where depression is very prevalent so if you see a friend that could be suffering make sure you extend a hand.
