i had to stop reading after "I had been watching attentively from a hammock ..."

I got past the hammock and all the way up to the part about wiping tears from lower eyelids. Seems an ok read.  But lost interest for personal reasons.  :)

"But I do remember my first dyno-related emotional breakdown."

There was once I time when I would have been certain that this was satire.

But since then I've grown and matured.

Now I admire the courage it must take to tell the story of one's first dyno-related emotional breakdown.

Basically a 4 page article about how someone harbored 4 years of emotional and ego damage while attempting a dyno move on top rope. Her theory is that her friends offered too much encouragement when they should have been more silent. Insert eye roll emoji.

I praise it for writing that. However, I'm not unoffended by the heavy use of emotions in the writing, I was unprepared and am in need of a chant circle to cleans myself.

Not in my circle. we drink black coffee to grow chest hair and recover from the blackout from the night before, purposely don't clip the first bolt at the gym to see how many belay cards we can have revoked, rock assless leather chaps because they are punk rock, and only climb trad routes in the alpine because that is hardcore.

I personally believe slab climbing has more potential for positive social change, but I respect the author's opinion.

I guess I was just too  insensitive? Shocker considering the article.

"embracing dynamic climbing styles." Isn't that misconduct?

Basically too embarrassed to try because people were watching. Even though said people were admittedly supportive. I’ve experienced this too.. when I was in middle school. As an adult, I don’t find it to be that difficult to do what I want to do without letting the idea of what other people *might* think of me interfere with my fun.

Why can't we just accept that we are going to fail at things in life? I have climbed with a few people who act like their dog died when they can't get up a climb. I don't climb with them again.
I have struggled and lowered off of lots of routes, I have had lots of beta and info shouted to me, never once has climbing been more than just a fun outing. I hate that everything walks into "inclusiveness" even comments like "just go for it" are offensive these days. It is a rock... It is not inclusive because it is a rock. Climb it in whatever style you pick, your friends will offer encouragement, listen or don't.

Guess I am probably going to get told how "privileged" I am now.

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
