Insects, please be aware when climbing, of possible, insect attacks, I say this having had a hornet fly up my tee while belaying, although there several minutes, didn't sting.

Omnipositors are much scarier. They can penetrate anything!

In reply to budgie65: I was on Christmas Curry on Saturday and attacked by numerous kamakazi lice that seemed to inhabit just about every crack on the route! There are also those weird flies at Portland that drop on you as you progress.

In reply to EeeByGum: weird flies, I get it, like flying chocks.
