How long before Aleks starts babbling about eating dogs and some tough guy starts threatening to beat up your dog?

And which is worse, crag dogs or crag babies ?

Grab the popcorn

I mean, is this a poor trolling attempt or have you NEVERRRR seen a "dogs at the crag" thread?

And where's that guy that argues that animals don't have feelings?

Finally, someone has the nerve to talk about this! At last, a new subject. The proverbial "elephant in the room" no one talks about.

 He joined four days ago probably not a troll. To the OP welcome to MP and as you're quickly learning, posting about a topic that has been discussed at great length will get you nothing but sarcasm.

I bet the dogs are thinking, "What's with all the humans in the forest?"

Dogs at the crag? Sounds like a great idea. Maybe MP should sponsor a Crag-Day-with-a-Dog. Could be pretty magical.

This Pro surfer has already covered at least 7 topics that stir the pot.  And in a month of gym climbing he’s already established a pattern of waiting out the crowds by sitting in his car (that one’s pretty funny).  

“What’s with all the dogs at the crags?  Like seriously...Do you need a dog for emotional support?”

“Thats why sometimes I just wait in my car outside of the gym until its not crowded then I rush it in and work on the problem.”

“I started at a climbing gym about a month ago and I wanted to get into crag climbing. I bought some good shoes but now I just need to get a harness, locking carabiner, rope, and most importantly a good belay device. I don't really have that many friends that climb? How do you find a belay partner. I was thinking I could just show up to the crag and ask someone to belay me, but not sure on the proper etiquette. Either way it would be safer than trying someone new. I figure, if I get a foolproof belay device like the revo, maybe it would be safer to trust a stranger? I know that being a good climber doesn't mean you will be a good belayer, so I will look out for the people who use proper belay technique. Also since the revo works like a normal belay device and not the Grigri(which I have been told is infamous for lowering accidents) It should be easy for a random climber to belay me without practicing first on the device. Plus it is basically fall-proof since it will lock up no matter what. I also plan to use the approach that I am basically "free soloing" so that way I never truly rely on the rope. Does this work in the real world?”

I'm sad he didn't go to Supertopo and pretend to be Trump's son in law...

In fact, maybe he is Trump's son-in-law.

Like, seriously...do you need a bunch of climbers for emotional support?

Free solo far away from the crowds...

Apparently some people feel like they do... Welcome to the circus.. I highly suggest you put on a helmet and duck, because you are about to get pelted..

Way to stir the hornets nest...
