Alright, so I've been trolling around here for a while, but never had a decent post. Finally I've got a question worth its while.

What is the craziest thing you've done for a summit pic, or craziest thing you've seen done.

I saw a Adolf Oliver Nipel signature at a summit registry once. But that's just more pathetic than crazy. BackCountry

Ten years ago my partner and I topped out on Devils Tower. He went to remove his shoes and sat down. Unfortunately, he sat down directly on a cactus. He immediately dropped his pants and began picking out the pricks. He got most of them out except for a few around his taint. This is where I came in. He bent over and spread his cheeks and I had to pull out the remaining pricks while another group of climbers topped out and wondered what we were doing! Troy Tadlock

Unless my parter was a girl, those cactus thorns would have stayed right where they were!

Rock Climbing Photo: Kor Roof on a windy day. Hard to tell which way is...


I was gonna swing around a lasso too, but lost the nerve once I got on top and realized just how I'd fall and swing back into the spire if the single many bolt actually held.

I was tempted to find a tall Dr. Seuss hat for the summit of Ancient Art, but alas I couldn't find one in time.
