At the Main Crag

Postby Drifter » Thu Jan 18, 2007 4:30 pm

Please can you all be friendly at Main Crag Silvermine. Most of you are however a few aren't and would ask these people to be friendly and understand that other people would like to climb at Main Crag Silvermine and feel welcomed.

Hi Drifter
Any chance this \"unfriendly\" person was an older man with short/shaved hair? Have been unfortunate enough to climb in the same place as him on a few occasions. He makes rather obnoxious comments about talking or noise levels at the crag...has a serious chip on his shoulder. I had some beginners at Lower Silvermine and he started with his usual bullsh#t… We confronted him, told him he was rude and unreasonable, and he headed off to the other side of the crag.
If he wants the country feel, maybe he should take the time and climb at a country crag.

This country doesn't need anymore violence

We don't need rock rage we have enough violence in our society. We just all need to learn to be more friendly if we aren't

Quickdraw would just take a little longer... Cam would work, otherwise grigri at the end of short sling...

The description of this rather unpleasant character fits me, however it is definitely not, as I am a friendly fellow. (Unless crossed!) Besides, I have not climbed at the main crag for a couple of years, but can often be found at the Lower crag.
