            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”

                      [...] 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.

                        You tossers.

                          5.13 hasn’t been hard since like 1983. Wanker.

                              Maybe the ATC ought to say “I climb mountains in snow and rain. I climb trad, sport, do rescues and I rappel.”
