User uses for climbing equipment...

Postby Poppie » Fri Feb 24, 2012 8:34 am

I was teaching a client computers the other day, as I left her house, I saw her washing-peg bag... (See image.)

Any other weird and wonderful uses for climbing equipment out there?

OH EM GEE Justin!

You know if that bolt fails there will be squirrells dying all over North and South America!! And famine in Somalia! You should really back that up. Better yet, place a cam. You know how unsafe it is to just depend on one bolt. Especially if you don't know who placed it. Is that bolt 316 stainless? Looks a bit yellow, could be electroplated... And the hanger? And the washer?? You know you'll get an electrolitic reaction if any component isn't 316SS. Is that a chloride rich environment? It's in the Western Cape right? Better watch out. Is that a cut bolt or a rolled one?? That sling looks a bit faded, has it been exposed to UV? Not even to start on the sling stright onto the hanger! Oh the HORRORS!!!

I need me a whole weekend of tradding to recover. YOH YOH YOH!

Phone the ARF, STAT!

Oh no a bolt, should have used natural gear! Next thing you know your whole house is going to be riddled with bolts. Don't you read the forum? :lol:

Never did me any harm, or either of my brothers, or any of our kids!

Or do you mean you don't want the kid to develop any muscles in their legs so they become as honed climbing beast?

Oh the HORRORS!!!

- Squirrels - Rats with tails
- I'll break out the angle grinder and cut a slot for a backup cam tonight
- 316, nope but the bolt came with my rifle safe and was signed off by the SAPS
- Could be!?
- The hanger is Petzl
- What washer?
- Lucky for me there is no 316SS in the system
- Slap bang in the middle of the WC
- Cut/rolled?? Not sure, what do they normally do in China?
- I got that sling as 21st B'day present (I'll have to check my FB profile to see how old I am now)
- Faded? I'll compare them with the 21st B'day photos and let you know
- I thought everyone did that?

Thanks for your concern. Good to know that Chris turned out ok. From the look of things right now Sport climbing will not be an option (Alpine climbing is more likely :P
