/ What an awesome bunch we climbers are
I just spent a fun day at Burbage North and South, enjoying the brilliant winter conditions on the grit. There were loads of climbers out today enjoying the sunshine. Both small and large groups; all happy to let you join in and work prolems with them, making sure you get a turn. I would like to thank them all for the encouragement (and laughs) on all the problems I succeeded and failed at.
Hope all who were out today enjoyed it just as much
Today strengthened my view that the climbing community is a special one to be associated with.

Ya really gotta stop smoking that stuff Legs!
and of course everybody cleaned the chalk off afterwards?
Jeeze man your obsessed. Always with the chalk, give it a rest.
I think there's some truth in that. Boulderers are usually pleased to see other boulderers, you can always use more mats, spotters and beta. Trad climbers are often disappointed to see other tradders, they're on your route, they're making a hash of it and they smell of elderberries.
