The three rules of climbing:

1. Look good.
2. When in doubt, run it out.
3. Safety third.

1) “The Edge, there is no honest way to explain it because the only people who really know where it is are the ones who have gone over.”
-Hunter S. Thompson

You never really know what you are capable of climbing until you push past it.

2) Smoking pot? Check your knot!
This one should be obvious.

2. Straight arms are happy arms.
