LATAC: Hold on, I Gotta Take This

Look at this Asshole Climber (LATAC) - smart phone, shitty belayer.

I'm pretty sure the conversation went something like this:

"I said to her, 'look, if you're going to wear a helmet while sport climbing, we're breaking up.' She took it off and not 3 minutes later, a hold broke off and nailed her right on the top of her head.

What? No, she's ok. She passed out but the bleeding stopped a while ago.

Huh? Oh yeah, once Tony's done with this climb, I'm gonna take a burn and then we'll haul her down to the parking lot and see if her friends will take her to the hospital.

Yeah, it totally sucks, I'm not gonna get a chance to get on that cool 5.10a I've been working on. But I'm totally gonna snag her rope. She'll have no idea what happened to it and besides, we broke up a few minutes ago."


  1. Hey, I think I know that guy. He IS an asshole!

  2. "Don't want to get my feet dirty, better stand on the rope!"

  3. At least his harness is up around his ribcage, where it belongs.
