Significant events that have changed your climbing 11-Apr-2010 At 3:19:01 PM Estey
Jesus Cruze, this is the most soppy thread ever. Maybe it is time you and Marta started making babies.

Funny how emotional stress can affect your climbing. Some climbers who usually get scared when their feet get level with bolt can turn into absolute nutters. Others who are usually comfortable well above gear turn into quivering messes.

Reminds me of a week I spent with Pommie brother in law in the mountains. After a few days of constant fighting with his wife Rob disappeared. His wife informed me they were getting divorced and that he had walked up to the station to get a train to the airport to go back to England. I drive up and find him wondering around Katoomba in a daze. I convince him to get in the car and eventually to go climbing to take his mind of things. About four pitches up he decides to look down and his reason for feeling sorry for himself suddenly changed and he started fighting with me. He made up with his wife that night and they now have two children.

I'm not sure what you can take from this but what I learnt was that if you choose to go climbing with someone under severe emotional stress don't expect a good belay.
