I used to buy into that stereotype, then I went to France! The average French climber might not be as nut and cam savvy as the average Araps bunny, but they sure know a thing or two about running it out above antique pegs. A big thing which struck me over there is a seeming acceptance that climbing isn't bloody ping-pong, Euro's get that some climbing is dangerous, they're alright with that concept. You might see "clip it and go without thinking about it", I often heard "if you don't want to take the risk, don't get on the route"
