/ Slogans for Beastmaker
Some use(full/less) comments uttered by climbing partners as encouragement:
If you aren't flying you aren't trying.
Less skin, less weight.
No pain, no gain.
One move further.
Just crimp it.
If at first you don't succeed, become a dirty headpointer.
A few classics...
I am beastly.
quitters dont win, winners dont quit
Scary at age 8!
"Pain is weakness leaving the body."
Get a picture of Jerry. And write underneath in a speech bubble something like "Is that all you've got?"
pain is temporary, glory is forever...
Man up, Princess!
> "Pain is weakness leaving the body."

We've got 'It's meant to be hard' near ours but I realise that could be interpreted a few ways...
In one of the first indoor walls I ever climbed at, there was a small training section with some fingerboards and someone had written "YOU ARE FAT AND WEAK, TRAIN MORE"
Although I'm not sure if that's motivating or just insulting ;-)
" Oh no not you again fatty"?
Or in true Chopper Read style:
"Harden the Fu*k Up."

Reminds me a bit of Bike Snob NYC's "Power Meter for Amateur Cyclists":
if you can't be good be strong
if you can't be strong be light
if you cant be strong or light, take up darts
Go Full Force!
'watch and weep'
'honed to the bone' from an old climbing training book
