comment Monkeys and Rock Climbing
In Ontario i've seen climbers attacked by Canada Geese defending their eggs in nests on ledges. Funny to watch but not so funny for the geese...I'm with @ShemSeger, it is their habitat...Find a different crag for the day or pick a better route. Last thing you need is government nature officials to close a crag because too many climbers were disrupting the natural habitat.

Bring a nalgene dedicated for pee and a bottle of pepto bismal. Once you're question is updated with more info I will provide a more elaborate and actual answer.

comment How do I get my fingers and toes warm before rock climbing at cold temperatures?
I'd also suggest a buff as opposed to a scarf, more versatile and less likely to get caught in a belay device...My friend got her hair stuck in an ATC once, it was not a pretty sight, would hate to see someone get choked by a scarf in ATC.

comment What to do with a wet dog while camping
My dog never comes inside the tent in fear of him chewing the down sleeping bag in the middle of the night or something of that nature. he usually gets carabinered to the tow hook of my car on a 30ft lead or same setup with a couple cams, ice screws or some sort of anchor. He went for a swim once in a lake and when he got back on the beach he rolled around and was covered in sand, I had to put him back in the water haha

comment Is listening to music on earphones while hiking safe enough?
I almost stepped on a rattlesnake once when I took a step off the path and I assure you they definitely sound like a hiss and not a rattle!

comment How can I recuperate between two long walks
@njzk2 DO NOT STATIC STRETCH during the walk at rest points. The static stretch will only contract the muscles more. Stay loose by doing dynamic leg stretches! Also the evening after day one do not do the classic 15-30s stretch, hold each static stretch for three minutes deepening the strecth at the one and two min mark. you'll wake up the next day probably feeling better than the morning of day one haha Let us know how it goes!
