LESSONS FROM A LAZY CLIMBER
|This is the section of the blog in which I dispense random, esoteric, and mostly useless advice.This advice is drawn on my experiences and mistakes from the past few years of climbing. It is geared towards climbing long rock routes, with an emphasis on fast & light, alpine style.
- Belaying and Rappelling- my preferred system, and a useful rappelling trick.
- Simul-Climbing and Shortfixing- strategies for moving fast
- Clothing- lightweight and versatile systems to keep you comfortable
- Food- what to bring on a long climb for maximum send-ergy
- Gear- Bring what you need

My systems are far from static, so I WELCOME YOUR COMMENTS! I’m always excited to hear about how other folks solve similar problems, so chime in!
I AM NOT AN EXPERT, EVERYTHING I SAY IS WRONG, DON’T LISTEN TO ME, AND DEFINITELY DON’T FOLLOW MY ADVICE. YOU’LL SURELY DIE.
