      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Don't poop on climbs

Recommended Posts

I was at Index today, making the traverse from the bottom of Roger's Corner to the GNS area, and I smelled some definite funk. I was horrified to find my shoe coated in slimy brown diarrhea. This is an absolutely disgusting and selfish in an area with such high climber traffic. Go in the bathroom before you come or at least have the decency to go in the woods, a couple hundred feet away from any climbs. It's not that hard.

dude!! Thats gnarly!

 

Well, if it was solid chunks, then the person probably should have been able to control it. Seeing as it was more on the juicy side it could have been unexpected for the person. I'd bet they took a shit before roping up too... Sounds like they were having a bad day too. Anyhow, that's how shit goes sometimes eh? Would of been cool if they fixed the rope, and returned with multiple gallons of water do dilute it. I dont blame em for having to squirt there, but at least make an effort to clean it up!

True story (so I'm told):

 

Friend of a friend was on some el cap route and team above was dropping stuff on them at random. Biner. Nut. Etc etc. Annoying but nothing major.

 

A day from the top dude is belaying and out of the blue LOUD noise and he's sprayed by something.

 

It turns out team above him dropped their gallon zip lock bag FULL OF SHIT and it landed on the ledge next to him and exploded covering him and the haul bag.

 

As they were near the top they were low on water and he couldnt get much to clean up and had to finish the climb covered in shit.

typically, when struck w/ the big-D, its damn near impossible to control (or even really give a damn about) the location :noway:

 

not covering it is lame though.

 

horrid story john - woulda taken hero-courage at that moment not to just throw yerself off the wall to End the Pain :grin:

I've been known to deuce out on route, aka factor 2. I just hope my anchor is solid. Also, in my experience it helps if you have a lot of rope out.

One more reason for belayers to fear the dreaded 'factor 2 onto the belay'.

"There should be porta-potties at Index fairly soon!"

-the plastic guaranteed-to-be-destroyed type or the preconstructed Forest Circus type?

how hard would it be to get a honey bucket installed in the parking area? I'd chip in for that, I hate having to drive back in to town to drop a deuce.
