Laughs and our first ever GIVEAWAY!
We here are at Climb Like A Girl know that our audience has lots of great stories, and we want to hear them! To encourage some sharing we are running a small giveaway. We will be keeping it light and looking for some laughs, on that note feel free to tell stories about ‘a friend’, and don’t use names, unless it is your own. See details below on how to enter. `
So to get the ball rolling…
It was a pretty chilly day to be climbing in Kentucky; maybe about 8 degrees. The sun had yet to hit the wall of the crag we were at and the rock was so cold your hands would ache on climbs.
We met a small group of young climbers from various parts of the States and we became fast crag friends– chatting, offering beta, and cheering each other on. At one point a girl who was part of the States crew disappeared for a pee and returned a few minutes later from around the corner of the wall holding her chalk bag straight out in front of her.
It looked like she was offering it to us. She was breaking a smile and her expression said something strangely proud like, “So guess what I just effing did!?” Likely, in the haste to pull down her pants and harness to prevent her lady parts from catching a chill, her chalk bag must have dangled its way under the stream and… she pissed right in it!
She was simultaneously embarrassed and gratified with this feat and we were all totally awe-struck with the precision of this accident. We laughed, maybe applauded, and for the rest of the day no send on the wall even compared to this accomplishment.
To this day I think about her when I’m making potty in the bush. You should too: ensure that your bag is out of harm’s way so that your essential chalk does not end up turning into pee-dough. Life lesson folks, life lesson.
Actual bag of pee!
