Whether you like it or not, what you choose to belay with betrays a lot about you.

what about the hip belay?
LIMIT! this is your best yet… love this shizzzz.
You should add on to grigri “I’m a lazy bitch that can’t go ten mins without smoking a cigarette so I can only devote one hand towards belaying you”
how did you know that about me, Cm??????
the atc description is friggin awesome.
aka REI hippie? thats what we call them folks up here.
Cause CM knows you Limit. douche waud.
It’s good stuff though. I sport climb with my figure eight……
brilliant. thanks for the giggle.
[...] What Your Belay Device Says About You – Gri gri – I climb 5.12 bitch. Cinch – Can you handle my infinite nature? [...]
Dumb. Rocking a Gri-Gri tells a wall rat like me two things: 1: you sport climb too much to ever accomplish anything significant on rock, and 2: you have no idea how to escape a belay when your leader gets slammed on the head while on a wall.
Oh, and climbing 5.12 doesn’t mean you “climb hard.” It means you don’t climb 5.13, and therefore don’t climb hard.
5.13 hasn’t been hard since like 1983. Wanker.
I am ALL for the 8. Got one just like it. Rapping & belay device. It rules! Gri gri’s I call gay gays. HELLO
Maybe the ATC ought to say “I climb mountains in snow and rain. I climb trad, sport, do rescues and I rappel.”
well that makes me feel like a girl lol, but i have only been climbing for a few months
Where’s the hip belay fit in???
or at least the stitch plate
Wow! I thought all you hippie types were supposed to be laid back. Here you all are talking crap like your a bunch of cage fighters or something. YOU CLIMB ROCKS! Get over yourselves and lighten the hell up. You should be happy that new people are joining your sport.
Are you kidding me? We just climb rocks, no we do not just climb rocks, we risks our asses, learn to work as a team/partners enjoy nature, and do something healthy.
The people on this site are joshing around with other climbers…
So why dont you go kick a ball around, and feel like the macho athlete you are.
You should add to the ATC: “I’ve never seen any of these other belay devices before.”
Because I rock an ATC, and I’ve never seen any of those other belay devices before xD
what about the MUNTER HITCH??
Belay??? I just wrap the rope around my waist a couple times and hold on!
