Does anyone else besides me feel the unavoidable urge to bust out some badass air guitar on the tops of boulders after a send? if not, do you have any other celebratory traditions after a hard send?? maybe crack a beer, spark a bud, or simply let out a nice war-whoop? AWinters

I am the master of my own world~Dave Graham

After a few days of working through the moves, trying to link everything together, nursing split tips, and having nightmares, when I finally do send my proj, I usually just remind myself that V0's really aren't anything amazing and scramble down.

Nah. I usually don't celebrate. Feels forced to me, but I'm not a real demonstrative guy in general. Lanky

I generally break out the air guitar when "El Phantasmo and the Chicken Ranch Blast-O-Rama" comes on. Stich

best answer so far

usually i just let out a woop, but it depends on how hard-earned the send was. i think a graph needs to be made here.

i usually will smoke a bowl the the epic song of disco duck and do a striptease for people who are in parked cars. i prefer the windows to be up because it reminds me of the peep shows i had to do to afford my first rope. Dr. Ellis D. Funnythoughts

I like to be all chill but sometimes a bust of adrenaline makes me unexpectedly burst out with a yell or something... this is followed by a feeling of slight embarrassment and or confusion as i didn't try to make any noise but rather my body had a system override and did it on its own accord... i say its due to the excess adrenaline that is built up during the climb, anything left over just bursts out... lee hansche

Considering I usually get stuck on top and my spotter has to point out my exact route down and convince me I am not going to die comming down, a celebration seems a little over the top. J mac

Not usually into into any thing demonstrative- but years ago, I was climbing (with a pretty uptight guy whom I'd met at the Pacific Edge in Santa Cruz) at Pinnacles Ntl Mon. He couldn't quite reconcile himself to the idea that I would roast bowls before climbing...Anyway, I did this popular route called Post Orgasmic Depression, which has a perfect view from the hiking trail. As I stood on the ledge at the top, I heard applause from the group on the trail. Being something of a ham, I did a one leg-extended-arms- straight-out-at-the-waist bow on the narrow ledge, and said something like, "I want to thank all the little people who made this possible". Fun stuff! The audience seemed to appreciate it. Joe Huggins

Well, when it comes to a really nice route, I'm happy, but the last thing I want to do is drink or smoke- I want to keep on the roll, so I start looking for the next pitch/route. I get excited though, so I suppose I probably babble on embarrasingly about how great the climb was. Other people enjoy other types of relief for that...

a friend of mine had a great celebration upon getting to the halfway ledge on technosurfing 5.12b at rumney... i laughed a little bit cause he was only half way but thats something to be pretty happy about, he ended up getting through the pumpy finish moves and then finished his celebration... when techno is your first 5.12 i think a little hooting and hollering is in order... nice job jeff... lee hansche
