We've all been there, well I certainly have. There's something about the stresses of climbing, and the tensions of relationships that can add up to those cringey moments at the crag.

The toys are out of the pram, a few sharp words are spoken in haste, other climbers are turning their heads away in embarrassment, and all of a sudden you're that couple having a domestic over forgetting the water bottle, or not giving enough slack at the right time.

Of course, the difference with me is that it was never my fault... ahem... ;-)

In this video, sent in by Gaz Parry and Kate Mills (Epic Adventures), we see a little domestic, which includes shoe throwing and all.

Gaz commented:

"In the name of real life experiences of couples climbing I thought I would send you this little vid. It even made me and Kate cry with laughter and tears. We've had loads of feedback saying how refreshing it was that we bit the bullet and uploaded it.

We've been together for 10 years and if you can't laugh at these moments you wont last long!"

Thanks for sending this in guys, it had me in stitches!
