What is the best / most outrageous excuse for poor climbing performance you have heard. Come on guys we are all full of them most of the time. Lets hear some peaches....

I like to fake a little accident on the walk-in.
Pretend to twist my ankle or strain a finger putting on my pack.
This way everyone sees the injury happen and the excuse is already half made.
Whats even better is when I crank well that day with my \"injury\" :lol:

Not far off that one. When I did my pilgrmage to Yosemite some Canadian climbers left some gear in the boot of their truck. Along comes a bear in the night and ate 2 pairs of climbing shoes, 5kg of oats, and a bag of chalk. Must have ended up with the worst case of spyt-kak that has ever befallen a bear... :lol: :lol: :lol:
