erden Posted May 23, 2002 Share Posted May 23, 2002 Well, here I was climbing at the Redmond VW last night. This lady was climbing with a ring on her middle finger. I was next to her belayer, and told him that he should tell her to take the ring off when she comes down, cuz she may leave skin, or at worst a finger up there. He laughed, and when she came down, I observed no such effort on his part. Then she proceeded to belay him. I told her the same, and she said "I have been climbing 20 years and had no problem ever." I said that I knew of people who now have four fingers on one hand because they got their ring caught while falling; and she went "lalalala"... What's the general concensus on this? The shame is the same lady would sue Vertical World if she actually did cut/lose her finger if something did catch !!! Erden.
